Obama adviser Carol Browner heads to Florida
Carol Browner, President Obama's energy adviser, will be in Florida on Thursday and Friday to talk about the oil disaster, fishery re-openings and long term environment and economic recovery, the White House said.
Browner will visit Pensacola, Panama City and Tampa Bay and meet with state and local officials. Browner, previously head of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, is being dispatched as part of a broader White House focus on the Gulf region as its handling of the crisis has drawn mixed reviews.
The president and family will spend next weekend in the Gulf.
