Reynolds to deliver ‘Condition of the State’ speech tonight

DES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds will unveil her 2024 legislative priorities during tonight’s “Condition of the State” address.

 “I’ll share some ideas that I think will continue our momentum and success,” Reynolds said, “continue to challenge the status quo and continue to empower Iowans.”

Reynolds made those comments Monday morning as she spoke at a Republican fundraiser. This is the 8th year Republicans will control the legislative and executive branches of state government.  “We’re not just about talk,” Reynolds said. “We’re about doing things and making a difference.”

Reynolds, though, jokes that the House chamber where she’ll speak tonight may not be packed.  “Might not be anybody there. I don’t know. It sounds like we’re finally going to get winter in the state of Iowa,” Reynolds said, drawing chuckles from the audience. “We’re been pretty lucky so far.”

Tonight’s address is scheduled to start at 6:00 PM. We’ll join Iowa PBS’ coverage of the address at that time on AM-1300 KGLO.
