JACKSON — Gov. Phil Bryant will give his first State of the State address next week.
A legislative resolution says the speech is set for 5:30 p.m. Jan. 24 on the south steps of the Capitol. If weather is bad, the speech will be moved to its usual spot, in the House chamber.
Bryant began his four-year term Jan. 10. A chance of rain that day forced the inaugural ceremonies inside the Capitol.
If Bryant gets to give his State of the State speech outside, that will provide a chance to use the platform that was built for the inauguration.
Republican Bryant was elected governor this past November after serving one term as lieutenant governor. He was state auditor from late 1996 to early 2008.
