State of the State in about an hour


Gov. C. L. "Butch" Otter's State of the State speech is about an hour out. citydesk will be there live and trying to host a running commentary on the event, if we can secure wi-fi... so check back would ya?

The speech begins at 3 p.m. at Boise State University's Special Events Center in the student union (doors close at 2:30). You can follow along on Idaho Public Television's live legislative streaming.

We are already reviewing an advance copy of the speech; the press is asked not to release it until after the speech. So ya'all have to wait. But it's well known that Otter is requesting some serious cuts to state government and his philosophical underpinnings are similar to last year's speech. And the one before, and before that.... stay tuned.
