Like the recent special session, which was cut short from 45 days to 28 days (and finished in 25), the 2011 legislative session is budgeted to last only five months.

It will be the shortest legislative session during an odd-numbered year since 1971.

The 2011 session also will start later — Feb. 1, a Tuesday — and that is where Senate Bill 1063 kicks in.

Lawmakers still will meet on the second Monday of January, when their terms begin under the Oregon Constitution, for an organizational pre-session. That date next year is Jan. 10, when Ted Kulongoski’s successor as governor also takes office. So there still will be hoopla that day.
