Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R), who was sworn in last week, is set to give his first “State of the State” address next Wednesday to a joint session of the General Assembly, his office confirmed.

The Feb. 4 speech will be broadcast live starting at noon on Maryland Public Television, the station said. A rebroadcast is scheduled at 7 p.m.

Traditionally, governors have used the speeches both to push their agenda for the 90-day legislative session and to talk about broader themes.

“Governor Hogan is greatly looking forward to sharing his long-term vision of economic growth and prosperity — and the bipartisan fashion in which we can achieve these goals — with the people of Maryland,” Hogan spokesman Doug Mayer said. “It’s time for the change they demanded to be put into action.”

Democratic legislative aides said a decision has not been reached on whether there will be a Democratic response to Hogan’s speech and who might give it.
