RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is being invited to speak to a joint session of the General Assembly later this month.

The Senate approved Monday night a resolution for Cooper to give his biennial State of the State address the evening of Feb. 25. The House previously set the speech date as Feb. 18, but it was pushed back a week at Cooper’s request. The House must approve a version of the resolution with the new date before it’s finalized.

The state constitution says the governor “shall from time to time give the General Assembly information of the affairs of the state” and recommend legislation.
