CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Republican Gov. Chris Sununu says life in New Hampshire is better than it was a year ago, and that's no accident.

Sununu is giving his second State of the State address on Thursday. His office released a few quotes and highlights on Wednesday, saying the topics he'll discuss include improving the state's management of veterans care and educational initiatives focused on science, technology, engineering and math.

Sununu also plans to talk about eliminating burdensome regulations, reversing the opioid epidemic, making schools safer, and giving crime victims greater rights under the state Constitution.
