NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced he'll deliver his fourth State of the State address to the the General Assembly on Monday, January 31. 

The joint session of the General Assembly will take place in the House Chamber of the Tennessee State Capitol at 6 p.m. CT. 

“I look forward to sharing my vision for Tennessee, including my budget and legislative priorities for the year,” said Gov. Lee. “Tennessee shows the rest of the country that America hasn’t lost her way, and with the support of the General Assembly, we’ll continue to ensure Tennessee is a national leader for opportunity and freedom.”

Lee is seeking reelection to a second term this year. 

Republican lawmakers, who maintain supermajorities in the House and Senate,  are first focusing on the once-a-decade task of redrawing congressional and state legislative districts. Lee's administration has been focused on crafting an overhaul of the state's K-12 education funding formula. Lee has said he plans to increase the education funding level as well.

The address can be found on Gov. Lee's Facebook and YouTube channels and will be aired statewide.
