2000 State of the Union Address

The annual State of the Union Message is a vital forum to promote presidential priorities for the coming year. The message serves as a report to Congress and the nation on national conditions; as a platform to announce and rally support for the President's legislative agenda for the coming year; and as a unique opportunity for the Chief Executive to personally convey his vision for the nation to Congress and the American people. The State of the Union Message gives the President an opportunity to exercise legislative leadership by assessing current national conditions and making recommendations for future policy.
