(AP) WASHINGTON - House Speaker John Boehner (BAY’-nur) has invited President Barack Obama to deliver the State of the Union speech on Feb. 12.

In a letter sent Friday, Boehner says the country faces immense challenges and Americans expect the Congress and White House to work together on solutions. Boehner says cooperation will require, quote, a "willingness to seek common ground as well as presidential leadership."

The White House says it has accepted the invitation.

The Ohio Republican says the president can present his plan and specific solutions at a joint session of Congress in the House chamber.

Last year, Obama delivered the State of the Union speech on Jan. 24.
