Gov. John Hickenlooper makes opening remarks to a joint session of the Colorado Legislature during the 2014 State of the State address.

Gov. John Hickenlooper is scheduled to make his 2015 State of the State address this Thursday at 11 a.m. Ahead of that speech, Colorado Matters reviewed promises Hickenlooper made at the same event last year.

Two reporters covering the Legislature, the Denver Business Journal's Ed Sealover and the Associated Press' Ivan Moreno, talked with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner about specific initiatives or goals that the governor mentioned at the time.

Those included creating jobs throughout Colorado; eliminating regulations that hinder business; and lowering wait times at the Department of Motor Vehicles from an hour to 15 minutes, a goal that Moreno said is a "work in progress."
