Governor State of State

The stop last week in Hopkins by the Missouri governor is being seen as a preview for tonight's state of the state speech.

Jay Nixon will address lawmakers on the current budget situation and outline his vision for legislation and policy for the year ahead. A centerpiece of that plan is Nixon's "Missouri Works" program, which he unveiled in Hopkins as a multi-strategy plan for job creation in Missouri. State leaders are also facing a deficit this year of anywhere from 600 to 800 million dollars. The state's school funding formula could also come up in tonight's speech. Live coverage of the Missouri State-of-The State Address as well as the Republican response can be heard tonight starting at 7 O'clock here on KXCV and KRNW.
