PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is set to present his sixth State of the State address on the opening day of the annual legislative session.

The Republican on Monday is expected to tout his administration's accomplishments in the past year and present proposals for lawmakers in the coming session. Education, public health and safety and infrastructure proposals are likely to make up a good part of his presentation. The governor has said he'll continue to simplify or cut income taxes.

That won't sit well with Democrats and many educators who believe the state's schools and universities remain underfunded. But Republicans who hold the majority in both chambers like the idea.
