Gov. Bill Owens is pledging to work to lead the state back to economic prosperity and improve water supplies amid the drought.
Owens made his comments Tuesday as he was inaugurated for a second four-year term.
Owens says he has kept the promises he made during his first inauguration four years ago: to make schools more accountable; to improve the state transportation system; and to cut taxes.
The governor will outline his legislative priorities for the next year in his State of the State address on Thursday.
Owens is expected to discuss plans to revive the state's economy and balance this year's budget.
Owens won re-election by a 2-to-1 margin in November.
