The White House said Biden will be at a Grand Rapids-area school Wednesday to highlight President Barack Obama’s jobs plan. Specifically, the stop is expected to focus on plans to put workers back on the job by spending $25 billion to rebuild and modernize schools.

While in the Grand Rapids area, the White House said Biden also will attend a campaign event.

Earlier in the day, Biden is scheduled to be at a fire department building in Flint for an appearance to promote Obama’s jobs plan. The Obama administration says its

American Jobs Act would pump $5 billion into supporting jobs for police and firefighters.
