State of State speech virtual amid protest threatJanuary 19, 2021
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s annual State of the State address will be a virtual event Tuesday night rather than delivered before the typical joint session of the General Assembly.
Holcomb had been planning to give the speech before a small audience at the Statehouse in observing COVID-19 precautions. But that was called off when he announced the closure of the Statehouse until Thursday because of possible protests across the country related to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.
The televised State of the State speech comes a week after Holcomb took the oath of office for his second term. The Republican governor gave a brief speech then in which he talked about how he saw Indiana recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, saying the state is “steadily clawing” its way back.
State legislative leaders cancelled General Assembly meetings this week even though the FBI and the governor’s office have said officials haven't received credible threats of violence in the state. Protesters had been expected at the Statehouse on Sunday, but none appeared.
