White House Releases Enhanced State of the Union

Pres. Obama delivered his fifth State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on February 12. In his speech, Obama outlined his policy goals for the coming years, asking Congress to send him legislation to reform immigration, combat climate change, increase the minimum wage, and reduce gun violence.

The White House has released an “enhanced” video of the speech that includes charts, infographics, and statistics illustrating the President’s message. It has also developed a new tool called Citizens Response that allows the public submit comments on any portion of the address directly to the President.
