White House Confirms Obama’s Montana Trip

By Beacon Staff

HELENA — The White House has confirmed that President Barack Obama will be in Bozeman on Aug. 14.

White House officials would not say Friday what Obama planned to do in Bozeman. They say the first family also plans to travel to Yellowstone National Park.

Obama has been pushing his policy priorities — including health care — at events around the country, including a stop in Indiana on Wednesday and plans for another town-hall style event next week in New Hampshire.

U.S. Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, is leading the health care talks.
