Governor Brewer speaking in Tucson at business lunch and expo

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucsonans will get their chance to hear the State of the State address later today, as Governor Brewer will be speaking at the Hilton El Conquistador Resort in Oro Valley, during a multi-chamber business luncheon and expo.

She will be speaking on many things from Child Protective Services to education to human trafficking.  The Tucson Metro Chamber is hosting the Governor, whose speech is expected to reflect on the State of the State address she gave Monday in Phoenix. 

Governor Brewer spoke about her priorities, challenges and initiatives she is expected to push for in 2014.  The biggest announcement she is expected to give is about replacing the old Child Protective Services with a new agency. 

Governor Brewer will also be speaking about the number of jobs that have been created in Arizona, as well as to call on lawmakers to pass legislation that makes it easier for police and prosecutors to target human traffickers. 

Also on the agenda will be education, and how the three public universities can come up with a tuition plan that does not increase a student's cost during the four years they are attending school.

It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
