EAST LANSING, MI (WTVB) - We now know why President Barack Obama is coming to East Lansing on Friday. It has everything to do with Michigan U-S Senator Debbie Stabenow and the final passage yesterday of the Farm Bill. Stabenow says it’s appropriate the measure will be signed by the President at MSU because it’s a Land Grant College established to promote the education of agriculture, science and engineering. Some of the money from the Farm Bill will be coming to Michigan State to promote continued research into new uses for plant fibers and chemicals.
The President will tour those facilities and make remarks on the importance of the Farm Bill during his visit.
