House Speaker Paul Ryan has invited President Trump to address a joint session of Congress on Feb. 28, giving the new president his first opportunity to outline his agenda in front of the gathered representatives and a national audience.
Trump’s speech will not be a State of the Union Address. That will have to wait until January or February 2018.
In preparation for Trump’s February speech to Congress, and for later State of the Union addresses, Trump’s staff has received authorization from the General Services Administration (GSA) to improve the lighting within the congressional chamber.
New lighting, in the form of flashing red and white rectangles, will be installed throughout the House of Representatives chamber in order to help members better know, and find, their places within the large hall.
