BOSTON (AP) -- Gov. Deval Patrick is preparing to deliver his final State of the State address.
The Democratic governor will present the agenda for his last year in office on Tuesday.
It comes a day before he submits his budget blueprint to the Legislature.
Few on Beacon Hill expect Patrick to offer bold new proposals but to instead concentrate on completing work on goals his administration.
Patrick recently told reporters he will continue to invest in the things we know make a difference, in education, innovation and infrastructure.
Patrick has scuttled speculation that he might rekindle elements of the $1.8 billion tax package he proposed in last year's State of the State address.
He says he doesn't plan to slow down or lose interest just because he's leaving office.
