Vice President Joe Biden will be in the area Modnay.

Biden is scheduled to appear at a fundraiser for Indiana Congressman Baron Hill, but Congressman John Yarmuth invited the Vice President to cross the river.

Biden will visit GE’s Appliance Park, where stimulus dollars are funding the manufacture of energy-efficient appliances. Yarmuth says he thinks the visit will help generate positive public opinion of the stimulus package.

“I don’t think it has gained nearly the recognition it deserves for helping turn the corner on the economy,” he says. “Highlighting the benefits in this way should help increase public awareness of the benefits it’s provided.”

Biden will not make any public address while in Louisville.
