Gov. Tony Evers plans to deliver his third State of the State address virtually at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 12, saying the unprecedented move is consistent with his recommendations to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic and limit interactions and gatherings.
Evers also announced Wednesday he’s asked to deliver his state budget address virtually at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16.
He’s asking the Legislature to convene virtually for both speeches.
Governors have historically given both speeches in the state Assembly chamber in Madison to joint gatherings of the Legislature, members of the Supreme Court, the governor’s Cabinet and other guests.
