LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s office has released additional details about the plan for a virtual State of the State address, which will be streamed on YouTube Tuesday at 6 p.m.
In addition to the business at hand — the speech and the submission of the state budget proposal to the Director of the Legislative Counsel Bureau for transmittal to legislative members — a pre-program will include “traditional elements including an invocation, presentation of colors, Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem,” according to a statement released Friday.
More information, including the exact start time of the pre-program, will be available next week, the statement said.
Sisolak is making a departure from tradition this year — not only with the virtual address, which is out of caution for COVID-19 transmission. He is also providing legislators, the media and the public with a summary of the recommended budget before the stream starts.
