Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to deliver her third State of the State Address

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will deliver her third State of the State Address at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the State of the State address will be held virtually, in compliance with CDC and the State of Michigan’s best practices.

Under normal circumstances, Whitmer would request the House Chambers to deliver the State of the State Address to a joint session. However, given the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, these are extraordinary times that require innovative ways of doing things to ensure safety. A large gathering would pose an unnecessary risk to the health of legislators, justices, staff and guests.

Additionally, details will be forthcoming on how the public and media will be able to view and broadcast the address.
