Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might visit Park City next month to address a group of governors from the West.

The Western Governors’ Association on Wednesday released a revised tentative agenda of its annual meeting that includes a keynote speech by Netanyahu.

His remarks would be from 2 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. on June 14, a Sunday. The meeting is scheduled at Stein Eriksen Lodge June 14-16.

Christopher McKinnon, one of the organizers of the meeting, said it is "uncertain" whether the prime minister will appear. He said he expects a decision from the Israeli leader by the beginning of June.

The organizers since early in the spring have indicated that a roster of high-powered speakers would attend, along with governors of some states in the West. Others who might address the group include two members of President Obama’s Cabinet and the president of the World Bank.
