ST. LOUIS — Vice President Joe Biden will be in Missouri this week to discuss the economy and ways to make college accessible and more affordable.

The White House released a statement Monday saying Biden would stop in central Missouri on Thursday, where he plans to discuss the progress of the Economic Recovery Act.

On Friday, Biden will be at the University of Missouri-St. Louis for a middle-class task force meeting focused on ways to get more opportunities to pursue a college education.

His wife, Jill Biden, also is scheduled to attend the meeting. She's an educator who teaches at Northern Virginia Community College.

The White House said more details on locations and times would be released soon.
