Mass. Gov. To Deliver Final State Of The Commonwealth Speech
Originally published on Mon January 27, 2014 9:01 am
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is preparing to deliver a belated State of the Commonwealth address.
Patrick initially planned to give the speech last week, but had to postpone it under the threat of a winter storm.
Patrick plans to give the speech Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
It will become something of a political warm-up. President Barack Obama is scheduled to deliver his State of the Union address at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
The decision to delay the speech robbed it of some of its suspense.
Governors typically used the address to preview their budget priorities for the new year, but Patrick was required by the state constitution to deliver his budget to state lawmakers last Wednesday.
The speech will be Patrick's final State of the Commonwealth address. He will not seek re-election this year.
