The governor's speech is expected to start about 1 p.m. CST Tuesday in the state Capitol in Pierre after the House and Senate take care of some organizational details.

Governors use the speech to outline their major proposals for the upcoming legislative session.

Daugaard has already set much of the stage for the session with the state budget he proposed more than a month ago. The Republican governor has proposed using a windfall in unclaimed property payments to provide larger-than-expected spending increases for education and health care for poor people.
