Lawmakers in Upper Chamber Prepare for State of the State Address

JEFFERSON CITY – Members of the General Assembly begin planning for the next fiscal year budget long before the governor outlines his fiscal priorities in his annual State of the State address each year.

Article IV, Section 9, in the Missouri Constitution states, “The governor shall, at the commencement of each session of the general assembly, at the close of his term of office, and at such other times as he may deem necessary, give to the general assembly information as to the state of the government, and shall recommend to its consideration such measures as he shall deem necessary and expedient. On extraordinary occasions he may convene the general assembly by proclamation, wherein he shall state specifically each matter on which action is deemed necessary.”
