State politicians have wrapped up their most recent legislative session, and Gov. Doyle says he has mixed feelings over how successful it was.

The governor says he was disappointed with how lawmakers dragged their feet on what he called divisive issues, such as the concealed weapon ban and a constitutional amendment to outlaw gay marriage.

Doyle said instead of wasting time on those issues, the legislators could have accomplished more to create jobs and improve the economy.

"Ya know, if they hadn't spend days, weeks arguing over whether we should all be carrying loaded guns or not, we'd have taken care of a lot more work," said Doyle.

On the gay marriage issue, Doyle says the current law that says marriage should be between a man and woman is adequate, and a constitutional amendment is not needed.
