Governor Rick Snyder now plans to meet President Barack Obama in Flint. He's backtracking after initially telling the Detroit News last week his schedule was too full to meet with the President. However, the Governor now says he will greet the Commander In Chief on the tarmac of Flint Bishop International Airport.

President Obama is headed to Flint tomorrow to talk to Flint residents about the water crisis. While in Flint, he is expected to speak at Flint Northwestern High School and meet with a little girl who wrote him a letter asking him to come.

Snyder has also requested a private meeting with President Obama and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver. Stay with FOX 47 News for complete coverage of the President's visit.
