State of the Union

The State of the Union Address is an annual message delivered by the President of the United States to a joint session of the United States Congress at the beginning of each calendar year in office. The message includes a budget message and an economic report of the nation, allows the President to propose a legislative agenda and national priorities; the address fulfills the requirement in Article II, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U. S. Constitution for the President to periodically "give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient." The date of the event may be rescheduled. During most of the country's first century, the President only submitted a written report to Congress. After 1913, Woodrow Wilson, the 28th U. S. President, began the regular practice of delivering the address to Congress in person as a way to rally support for the President's agenda. With the advent of radio and television, the address is now broadcast live across the country on many networks.

The practice arises from a duty of the President under the State of the Union Clause of the U. S. Constitution: He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient. Though the language of the clause is not specific, since the 1930s, the President has made this report annually in late January or early February. Between 1934 and 2013 the date has been as early as January 3, as late as February 12. While not required to deliver a speech, every president since Woodrow Wilson, with the notable exception of Herbert Hoover, has made at least one State of the Union report as a speech delivered before a joint session of Congress. Before that time, most presidents delivered the State of the Union as a written report. Since Franklin Roosevelt, the State of the Union is given each January before a joint session of the United States Congress and is held in the House of Representatives chamber of the United States Capitol.

Newly inaugurated presidents deliver an address to Congress in February of the first year of their term, but this speech is not considered to be a "State of the Union". What began as a communication between president and Congress has become in effect a communication between the president and the people of the United States. Since the advent of radio, television, the speech has been broadcast live on most networks, preempting scheduled programming. To reach the largest audience, the speech, once given during the day, is now given in the evening, after 9 p.m. ET. George Washington delivered the first regular annual message before a joint session of Congress on January 8, 1790, in New York City the provisional U. S. capital. In 1801, Thomas Jefferson discontinued the practice of delivering the address in person, regarding it as too monarchical. Instead, the address was written and sent to Congress to be read by a clerk until 1913 when Woodrow Wilson re-established the practice despite some initial controversy, an in-person address to Congress has been delivered nearly every year since.

However, there have been exceptions to this rule, with some messages being given in writing, others given both in writing and orally. The last President to give a written message without a spoken address was Jimmy Carter in 1981, days before his term ended after his defeat by Ronald Reagan. For many years, the speech was referred to as "the President's Annual Message to Congress"; the actual term "State of the Union" first emerged in 1934 when Franklin D. Roosevelt used the phrase, becoming its accepted name since 1947. Prior to 1934, the annual message was delivered in December; the ratification of the 20th Amendment on January 23, 1933, changed the opening of Congress from early March to early January, affecting the delivery of the annual message. Since 1934, the message or address has been delivered to Congress in February; the Twentieth Amendment established January 20 as the beginning of the presidential term. In years when a new president is inaugurated, the outgoing president may deliver a final State of the Union message, but none has done so since Jimmy Carter sent a written message in 1981.

In 1953 and 1961, Congress received both a written State of the Union message from the outgoing president and a separate State of the Union speech by the incoming president. Since 1989, in recognition that the responsibility of reporting the State of the Union formally belongs to the president who held office during the past year, newly inaugurated Presidents have not called their first speech before Congress a "State of the Union" message. Warren Harding's 1922 speech was the first to be broadcast on radio, albeit to a limited audience, while Calvin Coolidge's 1923 speech was the first to be broadcast across the nation. President Roosevelt's address in 1936 was the first delivered in the evening, but this precedent was not followed again until the 1960s. Harry S. Truman's 1947 address was the first to be broadcast on television. In 1968, television networks in the United States for the first time imposed no time limit for their coverage of a State of the Union address. Delivered by Lyndon B.

Johnson, this address was followed by extensive televised commentary by, among others, Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Milton Friedman. Bill Clinton's 1997 address was the first broadcast available live on the World Wide Web. Ronald Reagan's 1986 State of the Union Address was the first to have been postponed, he had planned to deliver the
