Welcome to West Wing Week, your guide to everything that's happening at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. This week, the President announced new initiatives that will put unemployed veterans back to work and new fuel economy standards for trucks, buses and other heavy duty vehicles that will reduce oil consumption and pollution and save businesses money. He also traveled to Holland, Michigan to visit an advanced battery facility that is using innovative technologies that will help America achieve these new fuel standards and used an address to the nation on the credit downgrade to talk about how we can create more jobs. That's August 5th to August 11th or "Made In America."
