President Obama continues his Recovery Summer Campaign with a tour of a Smith Electric Vehicles assembly plant followed by a speech delivered to workers on site. The company is a manufacturer of all-electric, zero emissions commercial trucks. According to the White House release, the company received a $32 million grant from federal stimulus funds, i.e. The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009 ($2.4 billion of which was earmarked for advanced battery and electric vehicle grants). The company will use the funding to begin manufacturing operations at a re-purposed jet engine overhaul facility at the Kansas City International Airport. The company is making plans to establish as many as 20 regional assembly plants in the U.S.
