Gov. Rick Snyder will deliver his first State of the State address Wednesday, but he won't be putting out a written copy of the speech.
Spokesman Ryan Kazmirzack says the new Republican governor doesn't tend to work off a prepared text, so there's no written copy to release.
The governor's office also doesn't expect to provide a transcript of the 7 p.m. speech immediately after Snyder delivers it at the Capitol. The talk will focus on economic development and job creation and is expected to be about 40 minutes long. It will be broadcast live statewide.
Former Govs. Jennifer Granholm and John Engler usually released embargoed copies of their remarks before their State of the State speeches. Their speeches also were posted online after they spoke.
