President To Visit Fire Zone

Another presidential visit to California planned. President Bush will travel to California Tuesday to survey damage left by deadly wildfires that have swept across the southern part of the state.

White House press secretary Scott McClellan says the president plans to travel to California to view the fire damage and receive an update on federal efforts to assist. Bush has designated four California counties a major disaster area, and has ordered federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts. The president´s action made federal money available for disaster-struck people in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura counties.

The trip will be Bush´s tenth to the state.
