HOLLAND, MI (WHTC News) - The White House says that there will be no general public appearances for President Obama when he arrives in Holland on Thursday afternoon to tour the JCI-Saft lithium-ion battery-making plant on 48th Street. He is expected to promote new technologies towards his auto fuel standards goals. JCI had received a 299 million-dollar federal grant to refurbish the former Meadowbrook facility. It’s the second trip to Holland in 13 months for Mr. Obama; he spoke at the groundbreaking of the LG-Chem battery-making plant last July.
