COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is giving her annual State of the State address before a joint session of the Legislature.

The Republican governor will likely focus on jobs and education in her speech that starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Haley has said her top priority this year is her education initiative. It would spend an additional $177 million in the coming fiscal year on K-12 public schools.

This year's speech comes as Haley seeks re-election.

She'll likely thank legislators for finally passing a government restructuring bill that she's been fighting for since her 2010 campaign.

The bill approved Tuesday creates a new, Cabinet-level Department of Administration that gives the governor's office oversight of many of the bureaucratic functions of government such as property and fleet management.
