Gov. Rick Scott's press shop is using social media to release "previews" of the State of the State speech tonight. We'll collect them here:

*Tonight, during my State of the State speech, I will recognize four leaders in business that are helping Florida get back to work. The first is Armand Lauzon, president of Chromalloy, an aviation parts manufacturing company that created 400 new jobs in Hillsborough County.

*The second business leader that I will recognize in my speech tonight is David Meers, Chief Operating Officer of Vision Airlines. Vision recently began flying to 23 cities from Destin. They are helping shuttle tourists to our beaches on the panhandle less than a year after the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.

*The third business person I will recognize in my address is Rheinhold Schmieding. He is the president of Arthrex – a manufacturer of state-of-the-art medical devices. Tonight, I will briefly highlight Arthrex’s plan to create jobs in Southwest Florida.
