THURSDAY, JULY 15, 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 to Holland, Michigan and deliver remarks at the groundbreaking of the new Compact Power plant. The plant is the ninth of nine new advanced battery factories to start construction as a result of the $2.4 billion in Recovery Act advanced battery and electric vehicle awards the President announced last August. By the day of groundbreaking, Compact Power estimates it will employ 70 in construction jobs. This will rise to 200 by September and 300 at the peak of construction. The factory will hire more than 300 full-time Michigan workers when at scale. The President will discuss how these kinds of investments not only create private sector jobs now, but help American workers and businesses become more competitive. The President's remarks are open press.

The President will return to Washington, DC later in the afternoon. The departure from Gerald R. Ford International Airport and the arrival on the South Lawn are open press.
