Obama Schenectady trip back on

Jan 14, 2011 11:36 pm
President Barack Obama's trip to visit the General Electric plant in Schenectady has been rescheduled for Friday Jan. 21. The trip was originally slated for this last Tuesday Jan. 12, but was postponed due to the aftermath of the shootings in Arizona. The White House says of the trip via Capitol Confidential:
"The site is home to GE’s largest energy division, including steam turbines, generators, wind and solar, and the future home of GE’s advanced battery manufacturing facility. The President will tour the site with GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt and he will make remarks on the importance of growing the economy and making America more competitive by investing in jobs, innovation and clean energy. The GE plant in Schenectady is a direct beneficiary of GE’s power turbine deal with India announced during the President’s trip last November."
