MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Gov. Scott Walker plans to deliver his third State of the State speech to the Republican-controlled Legislature.

The speech before a joint meeting of the Legislature is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday

Walker is expected to talk about his priorities in general, with more details to come when he releases his two-year state spending plan in February.

Walker has said he wants to focus on cutting income taxes, reforming schools, boosting infrastructure, workforce development and creating jobs.

Democrats and other Walker critics say his tenure has been a failure because he's nowhere near meeting his 2010 campaign pledge to create 250,000 private sector jobs.
