Obama To Announce Plans To Cut Government Waste

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is set to tackle job creation and government waste today.

Obama will sign an executive order creating the Campaign to Cut Government Waste. The order calls for the formation of an oversight board that will work with federal agencies.

The campaign's first action will be to target waste and duplication among federal government websites.
Obama says inefficiency, fraud and abuse are especially troubling during tough economic times.
Then it's off to North Carolina to meet with his revamped jobs council to get ideas on how to create more employment. While he's there, Obama will also tour a high-tech lighting plant in Durham.

The president will later move on to politics with a fundraiser in Miami.
