Senators arrive in House chamber

Senators are filing in to the House chamber for the State of the State. There are greetings and camaraderie, but there's also a solemn undertone - the governor is expected to announce sharp cuts in the state budget. Already, last week, he said he'll impose an additional holdback on the current year's budget in today's speech - the speech will tell how much.

Incidentally, a note about the time stamps on this blog: While I'm blogging here in Boise in Mountain time, our servers are up in Spokane in the Pacific time zone. So the time stamp on each post shows an hour earlier than I'm actually posting.
