President Bush To Spend Weekend In California

Sacramento, CA — President Bush and Governor Schwarzenegger will spend some time together when the president comes to the Bay Area this weekend.

Officials with both administrations say Schwarzenegger will meet Bush at the airport in San Jose after the president arrives Friday. The governor will then join the president for an appearance at Cisco Systems.

The president is expected to pitch the American Competitiveness Initiative, a proposal to double government funding for basic research in the physical sciences. If approved by Congress, the initiative would train thousands of new science and math teachers and extend a popular tax credit businesses can receive for investing in research and development.
