Morning Word, 01-08-13

Seven days until the legislative session

One week from today, the assorted media from around the state will gather in the tiny press room above the state House on the first day of the session. (Broken record time as I direct you to this site's fundraiser so you can make sure there is one more of us up there to cover the session).

An interesting part of the first day is that everyone is there -- smaller newspapers from around the state will send reporters to the State Capitol to cover the Governor's State of the State address.

The first day of a session can be a formality most of the time. This year, we will see the battle over Senate leadership unfold and new committee assignments in both the House and Senate. And we will also see Martinez's priorities for the session.

The real work will come later, however. And, as usual, it will likely come in the final few weeks for the biggest of the big-ticket items.
