February 14, 2014
WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama heads to a warmer part of the country today to focus on California's worst drought in more than 100 years.
The president will be in the Fresno area in the San Joaquin Valley, and he'll announce more than $160 million in federal financial aid, including money in the farm bill, for programs that cover the loss of livestock.
Later today, in Southern California, Obama will address key foreign policy issues during a meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah (ab-DUHL'-uh) at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage.
Obama is expected to spend Presidents Day weekend in Southern California.
