Ivey to deliver State of the State address next week

Gov. Kay Ivey will deliver her seventh State of the State address to the Alabama Legislature and Alabamians next week, her office announced Monday.

Ivey will address a joint session of the Alabama Legislature on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Old House Chamber of the State Capitol.

“As we prepare for the upcoming legislative session, it is clear that while our state has made great strides, there is still more work to be done,” Ivey said. “I remain dedicated to ensuring that every child in Alabama has access to a quality education that meets their unique needs. This legislative session promises to be both eventful and successful.

“I look forward to working with our Legislature to ensure a bright outlook for Alabama today and tomorrow.”

Ivey is expected to promote her Education Savings Accounts bill in this year’s address. The governor said the bill is at the forefront of her 2024 legislative agenda. Ivey said ensuring every Alabama student has the opportunity for a high-quality education is her number one priority for this term.
