This is it. After seven years in office, Gov. Susana Martinez gives her last State of the State address today.

Lawmakers have assembled for the legislative session that runs for the next 30 days. It's a so-called short session, meaning the Legislature will meet for one month (it's 60 days in odd-numbered years) to tackle the budget and whatever else the Republican governor puts on the agenda.

Today, the Legislature is controlled by Democrats, and this is an election year, so don't expect a flood of bipartisan bills to spill forth from the Capitol. Still, legislative priorities were much more closely aligned to the governor's when both bodies released spending plans for the fiscal year that starts in July.

New Mexico PBS is streaming the governor's speech, and SFR will have full analysis later this afternoon.
