The 83rd legislative session is officially underway, and all things considered, it was a relatively quiet start.

Gov. Rick Perry addressed both the House and the Senate Tuesday afternoon. While the governor didn’t name any emergency items, he did chart a course for the upcoming session. Perry urged lawmakers to focus on the economy and cautioned that lawmakers should continue to limit the size of government.
