TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A leader of a bipartisan group that pushes for congressional action to address gridlock and dysfunctional politics will deliver the keynote address during the University of Arizona's spring commencement Saturday night.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is co-chairman of No Labels. The group's agenda includes job creation, a balanced federal budget and energy independence.

Huntsman will receive an honorary degree during the commencement that will be held in Arizona Stadium.

The university says it is conferring degrees upon more than 5,600 eligible graduates in the 2015 graduating class and that more than 4,000 of the graduates have registered to attend the commencement ceremony along with about 40,000 guesses.
