Gov. Mike Parson outlines his vision for Missouri, the current legislative session and state budget in the annual State of the State Address this afternoon.
Beginning at 3 p.m., Parson delivers the speech to an audience of state representatives and senators gathered in the House chamber at the state Capitol.
The speech is meant to provide an update on large-scale state government efforts under way and signal new priorities for the next five months as the General Assembly works through the legislative session. Parson's focus is expected to include workforce development, education and infrastructure issues.
The State of the State is being live-streamed on the governor's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/GovMikeParson/, the state of Missouri's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mogov/ and the state's website at https://www.mo.gov/live. An overflow area will be established in the Capitol's Hearing Room 3 to view the live-stream.
