Obama's Cabinet members meeting in Dubuque

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) - Some members of President Obama's cabinet have decided to take road trips this fall to Denver, Chicago and Dubuque.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan toured the Millwork District in downtown Dubuque Thursday. It's the 2nd stop on their sustainable communities tour. The group hopes to improve access to affordable housing, and transportation while remaining sustainable.

"Really look at what we should be doing in Washington in conjunction with HUD, EPA, Transportation and other organizations to really assist community like Dubuque," said Ray LaHood.
