DAILY GUIDANCE AND PRESS SCHEDULE FOR
FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2009

Tomorrow morning, President Obama will then travel to Columbus, Ohio. He will be accompanied by Attorney General Eric Holder. The President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing en route to Ohio. The departure from the South Lawn is open press. His arrival at Port Columbus International Airport is open press.

The President will deliver remarks at the Columbus Police Graduation Exercises. The 25 Columbus police recruits graduating Friday learned in January that instead of being sworn-in as officers, they would be let go. However, Mayor Michael Coleman announced last week that he would use money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to pay the recruits' salaries so they could keep their jobs.

The President will return to Washington DC in the afternoon. The arrival on the South Lawn is open press.
