Otter arrives in the House chamber
Gov. Butch Otter warmly greeted lawmakers as he arrived in the chamber. Then he began by apologizing - because he said this will be his longest State of the State message. He joked that it might be longer than the session. The governor then introduced his 95-year-old mother, adding, "Mom, you don't have to get up," but she did.
