The Vice President of the United States is visiting the state today. Information from Vice President Joe Biden’s office says he will visit Iowa State University in Ames to talk about the adminitration’s proposals to reward businesses that bring manufacturing jobs back to America.
Biden will speak in Howe Hall, a 163,000-square foot building that features state-of-the art teaching and research facilities. That includes a wind tunnel and what the university says is a next-generation virtual reality room that is one of the most advanced synthetic environments in the world.
Biden last visited Iowa in October of 2010 when he made a couple of stops in Des Moines and Dubuque to campaign for Democrat Congressmen Leonard Boswell and Bruce Braley. Iowa State issued 700 tickets for the event.
