Gov. Whitmer changes date of State of the State address

Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s first State of the State address will happen a week later than originally scheduled.
Whitmer was scheduled to deliver the speech on Tuesday, February 5th. But Speaker of the U-S House Nancy Pelosi announced she would invite President Donald Trump to deliver his State of the Union address on the same day.
Whitmer now plans to give her State of the State address to the Legislature in the Michigan House Chamber on Tuesday, February 12th.
“I think both speeches are incredibly important and I want to make sure the public has an opportunity to absorb both,” she says.
Speaker of the Michigan House Lee Chatfield approved the request.
