RALEIGH, NC (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is getting ready for his first State of the State speech.
    
The former Charlotte mayor was scheduled to visit the House chamber Monday evening to speak to a joint session of the General Assembly in Raleigh and before a statewide television audience. McCrory should get a hearty welcome at the capitol since fellow Republicans control the legislature.
    
McCrory has talked for more than a year about how he'd lead the state and has spent the last month since taking office learning the ropes of state government. Medicaid, unemployment insurance and state infrastructure have been on his things-to-do list so far.
    
Previous governors have used the biennial address to highlight provisions in their upcoming two-year budgets. McCrory's budget isn't expected until mid-March.
