Vice President Joseph Biden will travel to the Atlanta area Tuesday.
The vice president’s office would not provide any details, but we’re told he will visit Drew Charter School in East Lake.
Tuesday is also the day President Barack Obama releases his budget request to Congress, so the trip could be related to a new administration initiative there.
