The governor will also release his state budget proposal for the next fiscal year in conjunction with the State of the State address. 

Part of Parson’s budget outline will include an 8.7-percent state worker pay raise and a two-dollar-per-hour bump in pay for group care employees working night shifts. 

He is also expected to highlight his priorities of workforce development and infrastructure. 

Parson’s speech will be held Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the Missouri House of Representatives. 

This will mark his fifth State of the State address since taking over as governor in 2018.
