WASHINGTON — President Reagan will deliver his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress at 6 p.m. PST Tuesday, Jan. 28, sources said Thursday.
The speech, which is now being drafted, is scheduled for one week after the lawmakers return to work.
Reagan was expected to focus on his unfinished agenda, particularly on urging the Senate to pass the House tax reform bill. Much opposition remains in his own party to the legislation. Extended hearings and debate are expected before a final vote.
The President will present his 1987 fiscal year budget to Congress Feb. 3 but may disclose the spending and deficit figures in his State of the Union address, as he did last year.
