It’s official, President Obama is coming to Utah. He’s expected to fly into Hill Air Force Base where he will give a speech on the economy. Utah is only one of two states that Mr. Obama has not yet visited as president.
Governor Gary Herbert is expected to greet Obama on his arrival.
“I hope to take the opportunity to talk to him about issues that are near and dear to our hearts. Some of the health care issues that we’ve debated here in this past legislative session that I hope that we can maybe get some answers to on capping costs so we don’t have a program we buy today that we can’t afford tomorrow.”
Herbert says he’s also looking forward to discussing public lands and energy development issues with the president.
After Friday’s visit, South Dakota will be the only state Obama hasn’t been to as president.
