What To Expect During The State Of The State Address

Tuesday night President Barack Obama had the country's attention during his annual State of the Union address.
Wednesday night is Governor Earl Ray Tomblin's turn.
At 7:00 p.m. Tomblin will deliver his annual State of the State address. It will be Tomblin's first edition of the speech since being elected to his first full term last year.
Wednesday morning officials with Tomblin said his speech will center around education.
Neil Berch, a political science professor at WVU, said a big reason for that is that Wednesday night is the first time he's been able to speak to the entire state since a controversial education audit came out last year.
If you remember last year the governor's office released an expansive public education audit  which scrutinized officials in the school system and the rules surrounding public schools.
The suggestions in that have been a hot button issue since they came out. Berch said he expects to have Tomblin draw from that audit to announce new legislation Wednesday night.
"I'm sure he'll talk about the economy," Berch said. "I suspect he'll relate the education issues to the economy. He'll also probably talk about energy issues, and the situation with the state budget."
WDTV will carry the State of the State address on our website.
