Greitens to focus on job growth during State of the State Tuesday

Missouri - New Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens will outline his policies on jobs, ethics, public safety and education during his first State of the State address.
  
The Republican will speak Tuesday evening at the Capitol.
  
Spokesman Parker Briden says more higher-paying jobs are a priority for Greitens. He also will touch on so-called labor reform, which likely means a right-to-work law banning mandatory union dues.
  
Briden says other topics Greitens will discuss include restrictions on liability lawsuits to help businesses, changing tax credit policies, paring down state regulations and "civil service reform."
  
Greitens is breaking from tradition and won't present his budget proposal Tuesday.
  
Greitens took office earlier this month. This is his first time serving in elected office.
 
ABC 17 news will have full coverage of the governor's state of the state address starting Tuesday night at 6:30. ABC 17 will also carry his remarks live on our website and on the air on KZOU.
