President Obama to deliver first State of the Union address

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Expectations are high as president Obama gets ready to deliver his first official State of the Union address tonight in Washington.

He'll tackle a wide range of topics including education. It will be one of the few areas where the budget will expand. He wants to revamp the no child left behind act by as much as $4 billion for elementary and secondary schools. For college, the president wants to take out private banks as the middle man for student loans. According to a congressional study this could save the government as much as $80 billion over ten years.

HawaiiNewsNow will have live coverage of the president's first State of the Union address. It starts at 4:00 p.m. on KGMB, KHNL and HawaiiNewsNow.com.

And because of that speech, HawaiiNewsNow at 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. will not be aired. You can catch Hawaii News Now at 6 p.m. on KGMB.
