Vice president to visit NC this week
FAISON, N.C. — Vice President Joe Biden will be in North Carolina this week to discuss how federal stimulus money will help rural Americans.
The White House released a statement Monday that said Biden and Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will “make a major announcement regarding rural housing funding” when they visit the state Wednesday.
Biden and Vilsack are scheduled to visit Goshen Medical Center in Faison. The clinic serves rural residents and will receive funding from the federal Recovery Act.
They also are scheduled to be in Pikeville to visit the local fire department, which also will receive stimulus funding to help build a new facility.
Further details of their visit haven’t been released.
