Guv to lawmakers: Make it short

"Legislative sessions have averaged 82 days over the past 20 years or so," the governor told lawmakers. "Last year factors beyond our control pushed us about 50 percent over that average. I'm sure you share my hope today that - by sticking to our principles and core values - we can balance the scales and make this among the shortest, most congenial, most collaborative and most productive legislative sessions in our history." Lawmakers responded with applause.
