Take a look at highlights from President Obama's fifth State of the Union address, as compiled by The Associated Press.
1. Minimum wage: Obama called on Congress to increase the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10. Last year, Obama asked Congress to raise the rate to $9 by the end of 2015, but Congress has not taken that step.
2. Taxes: Obama proposed to expand the earned-income tax credit, which helps boost the wages of low-income families through tax refunds.
3. Immigration: Congress was asked once again to pass comprehensive immigration overhaul this year, including a path to citizenship for about 11 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally. Bipartisan legislation has passed the Senate, but the House prefers a piecemeal approach. House Republicans are meeting this week and are expected to outline their principles for an immigration overhaul.
4. Jobs: Obama detailed a plan to launch more high-tech manufacturing hubs, in addition to two that were launched this year. Vice President Joe Biden is slated to lead a review of federal job-training programs and there is a plan to help long-term unemployed.
5. Health care: Americans without insurance are encouraged to sign up through new exchanges by March 31 deadline. Republicans are urged to give up attempts to repeal Obama's health care law.
6. Education: Obama's goal is to connect 15,000 schools and 20 million students with high-speed broadband in the next two years and to renew call to Congress to fund universal preschool.
7. Retirement security: The goal of creating a new savings account program to help people start saving for retirement was announced. Obama is asking the Treasury to create a bond called MyRA that can be offered through employers as a "starter" retirement account.
8. Climate and energy:
Obama's proposal includes:
- Setting new fuel efficiency standards for trucks
- Introduce first-of-its-kind emissions limits on power plants
- Cutting red tape to help states build factories that use natural gas
- Urging Congress to end tax benefits for the oil industry and use revenues to invest in advanced vehicles that use cleaner fuels.
9. Afghanistan: The plan is to wind down the war in Afghanistan by removing most troops and completing mission by end of this year. Also to work to negotiate a security agreement with Afghanistan so a small force can remain to train Afghan forces and pursue Al Qaeda.
10. Iran: Obama plans to pursue negotiations with Iran toward a long-term nuclear deal and threatens to veto new sanctions that Congress passes during ongoing nuclear talks.
