State of the State Schedule 2014

New year, new policy initiatives on the state level. Over the coming weeks and months, governors across the country will give their State of the State or budget addresses laying out their agenda for 2014. Like the national State of the Union address, these speeches are often critical to learning about legislative priorities and the political circumstances of the governor. As close readers know, I believe that most policy that truly affects people is made on the state level—and so I believe state politics is absolutely essential to pay attention to.

As I do every year, then, here's a list of the dates of each state's State of the State address for 2014—updated in real time as dates are announced. Tune in for an unbeatably rich appreciation of local politics; alternatively, after each speech is delivered, I'll link to the transcript on this page as well.
