McCrory to give 'State of the State'

On the heels of the presidential State of the Union address, N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory will deliver the State of the State address on Monday evening.

The speech begins at 7 p.m. at the House of Representatives chamber in Raleigh.

The governor typically delivers a State of the State address in odd-numbered years as the legislature starts its two-year session. Governors often use the opportunity to describe goals and objectives.

McCrory has had a busy first five weeks in office. He has selected his cabinet and made other appointments, pledged to prevent the expansion of Medicaid as part of the federal health-care law and has looked to increase offshore oil and gas exploration.

Last week, he requested a disaster declaration for Watauga County that could help victims of the Jan. 30 flood receive low-interest loans.
