Gov. Schweitzer’s State of the State

Schweitzer 09 SOTS

Tonight, at 7 p.m., Gov. Brian Schweitzer will deliver his fourth and final State of the State address to the full Legislature.

As far as I know the address won’t be streamed live on the Legislature’s website. However, Montana Public Radio, Montana PBS and Yellowstone Public Radio will provide live coverage on their member stations and online.

MTPR News Director Sally Mauk will host the coverage.

University of Montana journalism Professor Dennis Swibold and UM political science Assistant Professor Christopher Muste will join Mauk to provide analysis of the governor’s speech and the Republican response.

This is the first time Schweitzer has delivered the SOTS address to a Republican-controlled Legislature. Should be interesting. Be sure to tune in and to check tomorrow’s Great Falls Tribune for full coverage.
