Governor Sandoval to Deliver State of the State Address

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. - Governor Brian Sandoval will lay out his vision for 2013, when he delivers his State of the State Address Wednesday night.

Several state lawmakers have already made the trek to Carson City for the governor's speech. The State of the State Address reveals the governor's priorities for the 2013 legislative session which begins February 4th.

Clark County commissioners will closely watch the governor's speech. They've seen local budgets take big hits in recent years and wonder if the budget pain is ending soon.

"I really hope education finally comes to the forefront, isn't funded at the end of the session, could be funded at the beginning," said Clark County Commissioner Susan Brager. "I'm hoping that the attorney general would look at the housing market, which I think is crucially important we bring something to happen with the foreclosure market."

"I'll be anxious to see what he does, not only with the county and what services are sent back to the county and what demands are put on the county, but also I'm particularly interested in education," Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak said.

Governor Sandoval is known for being publicly optimistic about Nevada's economy. The Legislature is expecting that optimism to show in Wednesday night's speech. Whether it turns into policy remains to be seen.

The governor's speech airs Wednesday at 6 p.m. 8 News NOW and 8NewsNOW.com will carry the speech live and provide analysis after the speech.
