Capitol Bureau Chief A.J. Bayatpour previews what Governor Tony Evers and Republicans have already indicated they want to pursue during the upcoming budget debate

MADISON (WKOW) — Gov. Tony Evers will deliver the 2023 State of the State address Tuesday night. 

In a press release, Evers' office says the speech will take place at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Chambers of the Wisconsin State Capitol. 

The Office of the Governor released some excerpts of the speech ahead of the event. Evers talks about how he's proud of how far the state has come in the last few years.

He said when he began as governor four years ago, roads were in disrepair, school rankings dropped and the state wasn't actively working to address climate change.

"Well, I’m proud to say that the state of our state is much different today. We’ve gotten to work fixing the darn roads," the excerpt reads.

The address also talks about how employment has hit record lows, the work done to help Wisconsin veterans and the state's investment in public education.

Evers also says he plans to "bolster the middle class" and maintain the state's economic momentum.

There are several ways to watch the speech online, including on wkow.com.
