He said, she said

-A A +A

 Lawmakers have earned some rest after a surprisingly productive legislative session. I will save analysis for another day and give you instead some of the flavor of the last 60 days of verbal jousting in my second annual Quotes of the Session.

House Speaker Ken Martinez, D-Grants: “A lot of times we approach a problem from two sides and try to work it out. 

If we define the problem together and define solutions together, there’s no need to reach across the aisle.”

Rep. Nate Gentry, R-Albuquerque, during a discussion of the health insurance exchange: “This is the session where cats and dogs are dancing in the street, and everybody’s compromising.”

Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen: “We live in a different political world than we did two years ago or four years ago or six years ago or eight years ago.”

House Minority Leader Don Bratton, R-Hobbs, quoting the late Albuquerque conservative George Buffett on his advice to Bratton as a freshman legislator: “Think long and hard before you introduce bills. Talk to your colleagues because we’ve probably been down that road before. 

“And don’t overwhelm the process. I think sometimes we spend a lot of time on things that aren’t that important.”
