The off-season is over and now lawmakers will be working to get their Legislation through the hurdles.
The House and Senate will convene at noon. Gov. Brad Henry will give his State of the State Address to a joint session in House.
In his speech Henry is expected to outline his goals for the next year. Henry will also release his budget. Lawmakers will begin the legislative session with an estimated $600 million less than they had last fiscal year. Lawmakers have filed 2,510 bills and 88 joint resolutions to be heard during the legislative session. Bills must pass out of the chamber where they were introduced by March 12.
