The traditional speech for the new president, set for April 28, will unfold against the backdrop of heightened security in the aftermath of the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol attack and ongoing coronavirus protocols.
It will be designated a National Special Security Event, according to a Capitol official involved in the planning and granted anonymity to discuss the situation on Wednesday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi extended the invitation to Biden late Tuesday "to share your vision for addressing the challenges and opportunities of this historic moment."
The White House said that Biden accepted the invitation.
The speech will come just before Biden's 100th day in office and will provide him an opportunity to update the American public on his progress toward fulfilling his promises. It will also give him a chance to make the case for the $2.3 trillion infrastructure package he unveiled recently, which the House is aiming to pass by July 4.
