Office of the Press Secretary



March 24, 2010



In the morning, the President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing and meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office. These meetings are closed press.

The President will then travel Iowa City, Iowa, where he will deliver remarks on how health insurance reform will lower costs for small businesses and American families and give them more control over their health care at the University of Iowa Field House. President Obama first announced his health care plan in Iowa City in May 2007, launching a grassroots campaign for reform that led directly to the legislation passed this week. This event is open press.

The President will return to Washington, DC in the evening. The departure from Eastern Iowa Airport and the arrival on the South Lawn are open press.
