BISMARCK — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum will deliver his annual State of the State speech at the Fargo Theatre at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 16.

Originally slated to take place earlier this week on the North Dakota State University campus in Fargo, Burgum rescheduled the address due to a case of laryngitis that was hindering his ability to speak.

The Republican governor delivers the speech in a different location every other year when the state Legislature is not in session. Two years ago, he gave the address in Grand Forks.

In the past, Burgum has used the speech to highlight North Dakota's positive attributes.
