Sisolak sets date for state of the state


FlagWill he call for raising the minimum wage?  Will he deviate from the budget left him by Brian Sandoval in any meaningful way? Will there be an innovative surprise initiative?

Will anyone watch?

By Jan. 16, Governor-elect Steve Sisolak will be governor-elect no more, but governor for real, and on that night he will deliver his very first state of the state address, his transition office announced Tuesday.

Local TV news stations traditionally have carried the speech live. It will also be streamed online at

Legislators (along with lobbyists, government officials, perhaps some courtiers) will be on hand for the hoopla, but they won’t show up in earnest until the legislative session starts, on Feb. 4.

The speech will be made from the Assembly Chamber of the Nevada Legislature in Carson City, a smallish community south of Reno where Nevada’s state capital inexplicably remains.
