Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

President Barack Obama delivers the State of the Union address today.

Sacramento's speech-watching party for Obama supporters will be held at 5 p.m. at Head Hunters restaurant, 1930 K Street. Find a watch party near you here.

In case you feel accessories are required, the Obama campaign is offering "I bark for Barack" car magnets featuring first pet Bo.

We checked with the state Republican Party for a watch-party list, but none was available. Capitol Alert suspects GOP voters are spending their time at debate-watching parties these days.

The California University System Board of Trustees meets today and tomorrow. Among items on the agenda: collective bargaining, campus planning and presidential compensation. Guess which one is likely to get the most attention?

Find live-streaming of the public sessions here beginning at 11 a.m. today.

DOMESTIC WORKERS: Advocates of a Domestic Worker Bill of rights will travel to the Capitol today for a 10 a.m. march and 11:30 a.m. children's festival. They promise clowns, balloons, arts and crafts and games, along with visits to legislative offices. Their goal is revival and passage of Assembly Bill 889, by Tom Ammiano.

CAKE AND CANDLES: Happy birthday to Sen. Lou Correa, D-Santa Ana, who turns 54 today.
