COPY-Bush heads to Tuskegee to tout R-and-D plans

WHITE HOUSE President Bush heads to Alabama today to press his plan for bolstering U-S technology.

He's visiting the Center for Advanced Materials and Research at Tuskegee University, where minority students do high-tech R-and-D. Governor Bob Riley will tour the center with Bush.

The center educates minority students in science and engineering and helps to develop high performance materials for commercial, military and industrial uses.

The president says such work is crucial to America's economic future and will keep it "the most innovative country in the world."

Bush wants to double spending on basic research and hire 30-thousand advanced high school math and science teachers.

Air Force One is scheduled to land at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery at approximately 7:30 a-m.
