The state Senate is scheduled to take a break from its business on Tuesday so its members can join with those in the Assembly for the speech.

The Dalai Lama is also scheduled to give a series of public talks in Madison on Tuesday and Wednesday and meet with Tibetan college students from Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin on Thursday.
