The constitution of our state under Art. 5, Section 9, provides, that the Governor "shall from time to time give the Legislature information of the condition of the State, and recommend to their consideration such measures, as he may judge expedient.' Acting under this constitutional authority, l come before you with certain suggestions which may be of assistance to you in determining the financial policy of our State for the ensuing fiscal period of two and one-half years. At the outset I desire you to understand that I am fully aware of the division of power between the legislative and executive branches of government, and assure you that my brief service as an executive has not dulled my keen appreciation of legislative prerogatives, acquired after long service in both Senate and House.
