President Bush’s Planned Agenda for the Week of 9.9.01 to 15.9.01

In Official History on December 3, 2008 at 11:20 am

President Bush’s planned agenda for the week of September 9 – 15, 2001.  He planned to focus on education and the economy:

MR. FLEISCHER: Yes, let me get you the week ahead. I promise not to use the words “OMB” or “CBO” on the entire week ahead.

The President will launch an initiative beginning tonight and it will continue into next week that is a reminder of the importance of reading throughout America. He and Mrs. Bush will give a series of remarks and will also, in the case of the President, remind the Congress of the importance of sending the education package to the White House so that we can improve our public schools.

Specifically — and now let me give you the entire events for the week — the President on Sunday will participate in a coin toss to kick off the NFL season. That will take place in the Rose Garden on Sunday afternoon.

On Monday, the President will go to the Navy Yard with the Prime Minister of Australia for an event and he’ll have a working lunch and a meeting with the Prime Minister in the White House. In the afternoon on Monday, the President will continue his focus on reading and education when he travels to Jacksonville, Florida, and then on to Sarasota, Florida.

He’ll return to the White House on Tuesday afternoon, where he will host, in the evening, the Congressional Barbecue on the South Lawn. Also on Tuesday, Mrs. Bush will make remarks on early child cognitive development to Senator Kennedy’s committee.

On Thursday, President and Mrs. Bush will make remarks at the White House Assembly on Reading at the Library of Congress. And on Friday, the President will help dedicate the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and he’ll host a reception in honor of Diez y Seis before departing for Camp David.

Q The Sunday Rose Garden event, is that open for coverage?

MR. FLEISCHER: Yes, it is.

Q Thank you.
