UPDATE, 9/1, 12pm

Cindy McCain and Laura Bush will address delegates today. Talking Points Memo has the story.

In a conference call with reporters just now, RNC officials announced some additions to today's abbreviated convention schedule.

First Lady Laura Bush will introduce a video of the various Gulf Coast state governors (all Republicans, I believe) this afternoon and Cindy McCain will also address delegates, urging support for hurricane victims. Their portion of the program is expected to begin shortly before 6 ET.

"We will try not to overly politicize it," McCain campaign manager Rick Davis Davis said on the call, referring to the additions of Bush and McCain to today's agenda.

The AP and Time's The Page have posted details on the Republican Convention's updated schedule.

11 am: Press briefing conference call

4 pm: Call to order

4 pm: Official party business, including adopting the platform and electing convention officers

6:30 pm: Close of session (approximate)
