The Oregon Legislative Sessions started Monday. John Kitzhaber was sworn in as Governor. Bend Senator Chris Telfer was there: “Everybody got sworn in.  Lots of political speeches. They all sound good, let's hope they all walk the talk and we get some things done. So I’m excited, it was a great day.” Lawmakers are going to have to deal with a $3.5 billion dollar shortfall in the next proposed budget.   Lawmakers will continue to organize through Wednesday and then adjourn until February first when the real work starts.   Meetings adjourned by 4pm to ensure lawmakers can watch the Oregon-Auburn BCSS Bowl Game.
