"We're all in this together," Otter told the assembled lawmakers, officials and onlookers. "We have the talent, the intelligence, the will and most of all the people to get through this - smarter, tougher, and better than ever, and we will." He added, "It will require us all to look beyond the next election, and the next budget, to the next generation of Idahoans who will be reaping the harvest we sow, for good or ill."
