LANSING, Mich. (AP) -
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is preparing to deliver his fourth annual State of the State speech in Lansing.
The address Thursday night inside the Capitol building will give the Republican governor a chance to highlight accomplishments and call for legislators to complete unfinished business. Expected topics include immigration and mental health along with boosting maintenance of roads and bridges.
Snyder is up for re-election in November and surely will continue touting Michigan as the "comeback state" and mention Detroit's bankruptcy restructuring.
He won't give specifics during his address, but Snyder has begun private talks with legislators about the state contributing money now that foundations have committed more than $330 million to shore up Detroit pension plans to stave off the potential sale of city-owned pieces in an art museum.
