BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Charlie Baker is planning to discuss accomplishments from his first year in office and look ahead to issues he considers critical to the future of Massachusetts during his first State of the State address.

The Republican will deliver the speech Thursday night to a joint session of the Legislature — overwhelmingly controlled by Democrats — and a statewide television audience.

Baker said Wednesday that he expects much of the speech to focus on “things that people have heard me talk about before,” including energy policies and the state’s ongoing opioid addiction crisis.

He also says he will discuss some of the “great things” that Massachusetts has going for it.

Baker will also detail job training initiatives and unveil elements of his budget plan for the new fiscal year.
