The 2006 Session was a mixed bag. We were blessed with extensive resources, which we allocated to the best of our collective ability.
I’m glad we decided to substantially increase education funding, transportation funding, and agree on important initiatives like the Western States Primary, and USTAR.
The disappointing part is adjourning before the work was done. Last Thursday the House, Senate, and Governor’s office came to a significant and hard-won agreement
. We held up our end of the agreement and expected that the House would do the same. I’m disappointed it didn’t come together.
We did, however, agree on a framework - and we're committed to bringing the work of the State to a successful conclusion.
I suppose we will continue where we left off in a special session.
