How to watch Kemp’s State of the State address

Gov. Brian Kemp will give his annual State of the State speech Wednesday at 11 a.m. under the Gold Dome of the Georgia Statehouse.

Kemp will deliver the address at a time when the state has $6.6 billion in surplus cash to spend, so expect the governor to talk about how that surplus will benefit Georgians.

This year’s General Assembly began Jan. 9, and there’s no shortage of hot topics that Kemp could also address. Among them is education funding, something that features heavily in his proposed budgets.

Kemp will also likely talk about his proposed one-time tax refunds – $250 for single filers and $500 for joint filers – as well as property tax refunds for homeowners. Both are up for debate in the General Assembly and, if passed, that money could be delivered to Georgians this year.
