Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, chairman of the White House Rural Council, said the bus tour is emphasizing the importance of economic recovery in rural America.

“The president is committed to making sure that every part of America participates in this recovery, particularly a place called rural America, a place where our values are rooted,” Mr. Vilsack said.

Mr. Obama is expected to announce a rural jobs initiative Tuesday in Iowa.
