(WASHINGTON) — President Obama has accepted House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to report to Congress on the state of the union next month.
Boehner, R-Ohio, invited the president to deliver his State of the Union address in a letter Friday.
“The new year will bring a new American Congress, and with it, the opportunity to continue our work to build a stronger economy and secure a better future for our country,” the House speaker said in the letter. “In that spirit, it is my honor to invite you to address a Joint Session of Congress on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 so that you may fulfill your duty under the Constitution to report on the state of the union and recommend measures for our consideration.”
“Your report will inform our efforts to address the people’s priorities,” Boehner added.
The joint session of Congress to receive Obama’s address is slated to take place at 9 p.m. ET on Jan. 20.
