In the morning, the President will visit M. Luis Construction, a local construction company to discuss the need for Congress to act to pass a budget and pay the bills it has racked up. M. Luis Construction is a local small business that has grown in recent years thanks to increased access to capital through the President’s Small Business Jobs Act and other SBA programs. The President will highlight the impacts that a shutdown and default would have on our economy and our nation’s small businesses. There will be in-town travel pool coverage for this event.
In the afternoon, the President and the Vice President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. This meeting is closed press.
