What to expect from Biden’s second State of the Union address

Monday, February 06, 2023

2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EST

President Biden is scheduled to deliver his second State of the Union address to Congress and the nation on February 7, 2023. Biden presides over a United States that faces threats which will have grave implications for the country’s future: the war in Ukraine, the rise of authoritarian populism, an economy coping with inflation, hyper-partisanship, the growing urgency of climate change, and challenges to democratic elections and voting rights being just a few.

On February 6, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted a webinar featuring policy experts who discussed which accomplishments and policy priorities the president is likely to highlight in this historic speech. Panelists also considered how Biden’s agenda will be affected by the new Republican majority in the House.
