Last year, Udall called on lawmakers to sit with a member of the opposing party instead of the traditional, partisan seating arrangement as a symbolic show of unity following the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.). The process of finding State of the Union “dates” became a bonding narrative on Capitol Hill.

Most of the seat dates announced so far this year are changed from last year.
