SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Gov. Olene Walker rescheduled her address to the Utah Legislature to avoid competing with President Bush's State of the Union speech.

Utah governors usually deliver a State of the State address the second night of the legislative session. But this year, Jan. 20 also is the night President Bush will deliver his speech to Congress.

"She would like to watch Bush's speech -- and so would many others," said Walker spokeswoman Amanda Covington.

Walker rescheduled her speech for 6 p.m. Jan. 22.

She worked out the schedule change with Senate President Al Mansell and House Speaker Marty Stephens.
