House Speaker John Boehner's office announced Friday morning that Rep. Renee Ellmers will give the Republicans' weekly address on Saturday.

The Republican congresswoman from Dunn plans to talk about "the House's ongoing focus on jobs and securing fairness for all Americans hurting from the president’s fundamentally flawed health care law," said a press release from the House Republican leader's office.

The text and audio will be posted Saturday morning on www.speaker.gov.

This is the second time that the House Republican leadership has chosen Ellmers to give the address. Her first time was in 2011, a year after she was first elected to the House of Representatives.
