INDIANAPOLIS -

Hoosiers will have special access to Gov. Mike Pence's State of the State Address Tuesday night on Twitter.

House Speaker Brian Bosma reserved five seats on the floor of the House Chamber for guests to tweet commentary and updates as they listen to the governor's address.

The guests include WTHR news-gathering partner Gerry Dick from Inside Indiana Business.

Others include Josh Gillespie from Hoosier Access, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation and Scott Wise, CEO of Scotty's Brewhouse.

The idea is to make Indiana's legislature more transparent, and Bosma hopes the guests can reach Hoosiers across the state via social media.

Meantime, Gov. Pence plans to focus on jobs and education during his State of the State address. Pence says his speech should give people a better idea of how he plans to improve job training and education. So far he hasn't provided a lot of detail about those initiatives, although he signed some executive orders on his first day in office.

Watch the governor's speech tonight on WTHR Channel 13 or on WTHR.com. Political reporter Kevin Rader will be live in the House chamber to bring you his insight.

Wheel of Fortune will air at 7pm on the SkyTrak Weather Network.
