The regular session of the Oregon legislature ended in the traditional way this week.

Representative Bruce Hanna gaveled the session closed. “The 2012 regular session of the 76th Legislative Assembly is hereby adjourned sine die.”

Sine Die is Latin for without day, and there truly wasn’t a day to spare. Lawmakers finished their work just under the constitutionally-imposed deadline.

This busy week in politics also saw the filing deadline for candidates in Oregon. That was on Tuesday.

And then there was Super Tuesday — when ten states, including Idaho, held either primaries or caucuses.

A rich political breakfast for our analysts to enjoy. Bill and Jeff are here, as they are every Friday at this time.

Bill Lunch is OPB’s Political Analyst — Jeff Mapes is the senior political reporter for The Oregonian, and they joined OPB Friday.
