WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Wednesday agreed to unveil new jobs proposals in an address to Congress on Sept. 8, bowing to pressure from Republicans, who objected to the original date set for his high-profile speech.

Obama's long-awaited proposals could set the agenda in Washington for the coming months, but his preferred date of Sept. 7 had an unpalatable political edge for the opposition party: Republican presidential candidates were scheduled to hold a televised debate on the same evening, at the same time.
