Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Speaker Jason Wentworth issued a joint statement this past Monday to announce that the 2022 State of the State address will be held in a virtual format and broadcast live throughout the state on Wednesday, January 26.
“The State of the State address is a tradition rooted in history. It is an opportunity for Michiganders to hear about the work of state government and see Republicans and Democrats come together to focus on the issues that will put Michigan families, communities and small businesses first. This year, we’ve agreed that the State of the State address should once again be held remotely to ensure everyone can safely partake in this time-honored event.”
The MAB is currently working with the Governor’s communications team and will announce broadcast information for the address. As in the past, the MAB will make a feed of the Governor’s speech available to both radio and television broadcasters statewide.
