Obama in Sunshine State for Town Hall Meeting

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama brings his efforts to shape a brighter economic future to the Sunshine State on Thursday.

Thursday morning, Obama will fly out to Tampa, where he'll tour a maintenance hangar and greet crew members who work on aircraft that refuel other planes midair. The KC-135 Stratotankers have been involved in refueling planes flying aid into Haiti.

After that, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden hold a town hall meeting at the University of Tampa. There, they'll announce $8 billion in funding for a national high-speed rail system, an initiative the White House says will create jobs.
