OLYMPIA -- Gov. Chris Gregoire gives her final state of the state address this morning to a joint session of Congress in what might be regarded as "speech week."
There were speeches yesterday for the opening day of the Legislative session, and there will be an inaugural address tomorrow after Jay Inslee is sworn in as the new governor.
Today's speech will have all the usually trappings of a state-of-the-state, with a ceremonial entrance of senators into the House chamber and dignitaries in the gallery.
Later today, the House Government Accountability and Operations Committee gets an update on liquor privatization and, as Dr. Phil would say "how's that working for you?"
