Greitens to focus on job growth during State of the State

     (AP) – 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


     Greitens took office earlier this month. This is his first time serving in

elected office.
