Unfortunately the governor could not make it Wednesday, but his number two filled in.
We had the chance to speak to Lieutenant Governor Brad Little and he filled us in on some of the topics discussed.
"This morning we've already talked about education, a lot about education. Talked a little about wolves. I'm sure at some time we will talk about water, because everywhere I go all over the state people are really concerned ( I wore my snow tie today to try and bring more snow) and that will be a critical issue".
