State of the Commonwealth Address

Josh James / WUKY

In his eighth and final State of the Commonwealth Address, Gov. Steve Beshear cast Kentucky as a state on the upswing – with momentum in job growth, health coverage, and education. And the chief executive’s prescription for future gains is to “stay the course.”

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear will give his final State of the Commonwealth address Wednesday night before a joint session of the Kentucky General Assembly.  This is the last year of Beshear's second term as Kentucky's governor. He cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
