(TRNS) — House John Boehner (R-Ohio) formally invited President Obama today to deliver his next State of the Union address on January 28, 2014.

Boehner sent a letter to the president today in which he invites the President to speak before a Joint Session of Congress in the spirit of cooperation.

“In the coming year, Americans expect Washington to focus on their priorities and to look for common ground in addressing the challenges facing our country,” Boehner writes. “In that spirit, we welcome an opportunity to hear your ideas, particularly for putting Americans back to work.”

Obama gave his most recent SOTU address on February 12 of this year, which is later than usual. The tardiness of this year’s speech is related to the fact that the president was re-inaugurated in late-January.
