State of the State Addresses

Posted Jan 21 2011 4:16pm

Obama Portrait Tomorrow night , President Obama will give his second State of the Union Address since becoming President in 2009. The Constitution requires the President to give Congress a copy of the State of the Union Address, which outlines the President's legislative proposals and other plans for the country. Traditionally, the address occurs at the end of January, though the Constitution does not designate a time or limit the number of addresses.

What you may not have known is that many state governors address their state legislative body every year with a similar speech. Most of these state of the state addresses occur in January and February. If you want to know when your governor gives his or her address, you can check this website , which also has transcripts of speeches that have already occurred.You can also find an archive of your state's past addresses , some of these archives go as far back as 2000.

Have you seen your governor's 2011 state of the state address?
