There will likely be at least some bipartisan seating in the House chamber for President Obama’s speech next week.

Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) does not plan to renew his previous call for lawmakers to sit together in a symbolic gesture of unity. However, he intends to set an example at Obama’s jobs speech, which will take place before a joint session of Congress on Sept. 8.

“Mark Udall plans to ask a Republican to sit with him at the president’s speech, just as he did at the State of the Union address,” Udall spokeswoman Tara Trujillo said in an email Friday. “Mark hopes other members of Congress will do the same."

Udall sent a letter to fellow lawmakers in January prior to Obama’s State of the Union address before a joint session of Congress.

“It's time to take action by crossing the aisle and sitting together,” Udall wrote. “It's a simple step, but an important one that will go a long way in bridging our political divide.”

Tradition previously dictacted that the parties sit on opposite sides of the chamber during this type of speech.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) also said Thursday that bipartisan seating “may well” happen again for Obama’s jobs speech.

“I thought that was a good example to set. I hope we will do it again,” Van Hollen said of the State of the Union seating earlier this year.
