Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Gov. Jerry Brown, who has limited his public appearances since the November election, will deliver his State of the State address on Jan. 24, after releasing his annual budget proposal at a news conference Thursday, his office said this afternoon.

The State of the State speech will be unusually early, at 9 a.m. The Democratic governor spoke to a joint session of the Legislature at 5 p.m. in 2011 and at 10 a.m. last year.

Brown's agenda this year includes overhauling California's environmental regulations and school funding system, starting construction of the state's high-speed rail project and pushing forward a controversial plan to move water through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to the south.

Brown has been undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. The governor's office said last month that it expected treatment to be completed this week.
