President Barack Obama will return to Illinois on Friday, March 15, to visit Argonne National Laboratory, near Lemont, and discuss his energy policies, the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune are reporting.
An official told the Tribune the trip is intended to “focus on American energy,” and may or may not also include comments on the impact on facilities like Argonne of funding cuts caused by the current sequester.
The Sun-Times notes that this is the President’s first trip to the Chicago area since speaking at Hyde Park Academy on Feb. 15; the First Lady visited McCormick Place on Feb. 28 to promote her physical-fitness campaign “Let’s Move.”
