Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon plans to deliver his annual State of the State Address on the evening of Jan. 21.

The Democratic governor will be making his seventh address to a joint session of the Republican-led House and Senate since first taking office in 2009. The speech will be used to outline the governor's budget and policy priorities for the 2015 legislative session.

Nixon announced the date of his speech Tuesday. It's the same date on which he delivered the speech in 2014.
