WASHINGTON (AP) - Next stop on President Barack Obama's Main Street economic tour is a visit Thursday to western New York, a region that was already in decline long before the recession hit.
During a three-hour visit to Buffalo, Obama will focus on his administration's efforts to help small businesses. He'll tour Industrial Support Inc., a growing manufacturing company, and talk to employees about his economic agenda.
Obama began his White House to Main Street tour in December with a trip to Allentown, Pa. He has also made stops in Charlotte, N.C., Savannah, Ga., and Quincy, Ill.
Last week, the president sent Congress a proposal to create a $30 billion support program to unfreeze credit for small businesses.
