The Economic Club of Washington announced Thursday morning that Boehner (R-Ohio) will address the group on Sep. 15, at 1 p.m. The venue for the event is the Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington.

In early May, as the debate on raising the country’s debt ceiling was coming into focus, Boehner used an address at the Economic Club of New York to outline House Republicans’ position in the negotiations.

In that address, Boehner announced that Republicans would not accept any deal that did not include spending cuts commensurate to the amount by which the debt ceiling was to be raised – a demand that was met in the final debt-ceiling deal signed into law by Obama last month.

Boehner’s latest address also comes one day before the deadline by which the 12-member debt “supercommittee” must hold its first meeting. The members of the panel have not yet announced when they plan to meet.
