State of the state addresses

Each year, governors in nearly every U.S. state deliver a speech most commonly called the State of the State Address before both houses of the state legislature sitting in joint session. Known in Iowa as the Condition of the State Address, and as the State of the Commonwealth Address in Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, this annual, or regular, report from the governor on the condition and outlook of a state is a constitutional directive in all 50 states.
