Bush Back In Louisiana

President Bush In Louisiana
By  | 

President Bush has arrived in Louisiana for another tour of the hurricane-battered region. He'll also be consulting with federal and local officials.

The president's first stop was in Baton Rouge. The city is about 80 miles northwest of New Orleans and largely escaped the damage from Hurricane Katrina. But its population has swelled because of so many evacuees, and the city is experiencing clogged roads and supply shortages.

Bush also was in the Gulf Coast region Friday, when he walked through a neighborhood in hard-hit Biloxi, Mississippi. He also stopped at the airport and a breached levee in New Orleans.

Today's visit by Bush replaces a planned Labor Day speech in Maryland.
