DENVER, (KDVR) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis gave the 2022 State of the State address on Thursday morning.

The address comes as cases surge to all-time highs in Colorado with the omicron variant, and hospitals continue to feel the strain of staffing shortages and increased hospitalizations. Another backdrop for the address, Colorado lawmakers actually agree on priorities for 2022, but have different ways to achieve those goals.

The Marshall Fire also ripped through the governor’s home county of Boulder, as the most destructive fire in Colorado history. Many Coloradans are still in need of help.

The address took place in the House Chamber of the Colorado State Capitol. You can watch the full State of the State address on FOX31 NOW in the player above.
