Governor Otter gives his final State of the State and Budget Address

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

The start of Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter's last year in office truly began on Jan. 8 as he gave his final State of the State and Budget Address, using it not only as a time to look into the future, but to reflect on the past.

As with any session, the day began with a prayer by the chaplain and the pledge of allegiance. A few committee members were released early, excused from the session while addressing legislative issues.

After the Supreme Court Justices and the Appellate Judges were escorted in, Governor Otter was escorted into the House chamber, shaking hands with members of Idaho state legislature he has worked alongside for the past 12 years.For the full story, pick up a copy of the Mountain Home News or click on this link to subscribe to the newspaper's online edition.
