Bush Flies to Waveland

Today, Bush flies to New Orleans and Waveland, Miss., to talk about Gulf Coast reconstruction (and then stars at an RNC dinner in Palm Beach, Fla., Thursday night). That brings the president to the Gulf just a day before a House Financial Services subcommittee arrives for field hearings on housing options in the aftermath of the hurricanes.

The hearings are to assess emergency housing responses by local, state and federal agencies as well as share ideas for moving forward with rebuilding. The first will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in the board room of the Port of New Orleans Administration Building in New Orleans, and the second is at 10 a.m. Saturday in the City Council Chambers in Gulfport, Miss.
