At 11 a.m. tomorrow, Gov. Greg Abbott will deliver his State of the State address to a joint session of the Legislature gathered in the House chamber.
Today, the governor’s office put out a short web video with Texans talking about what they want to hear him talk about.
Apparently, what Texans want the governor to talk about is education at every level, including making sure that students graduate high school prepared for a job or college; creating jobs and reducing regulations on small business; improving roads and transportation (“money raised for roads, should be spent on roads”), and helping veterans (“whatever they need they should get” ), including with education and counseling.
As it happens, according to a statement from the governor’s office on the release of the video, “Each of these issues are key components of Governor Abbott’s Bicentennial Blueprint policy plan, which forms the foundation of the agenda he will detail in the State of the State.”
“I have spent the last two years traveling across our great state, hearing from thousands of Texans about the challenges they face and the solutions they want to see from their leaders,” said Abbott. “I have cast a vision to address those challenges to provide greater opportunity for all Texans; tomorrow, I will chart a course to make my vision a reality as I lay out my agenda for this legislative session. I look forward to working with each and every legislator to ensure that even the future is bigger in Texas.”
