Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - President Obama is expected to arrive in Lansing in about two hours, but both Governor Snyder and Congressman Mike Rogers will not be in Lansing to greet him.

Governor Snyder has previously-planned scheduling conflicts, said a representative.

Congressman Mike Rogers will be overseas for a trip related to his duties as Chariman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Congressman Rogers released a statement:

"It is quite an honor to have President Obama sign the Farm Bill at Michigan State University. For the last 158 years, MSU has been at the center of our state's $90 billion agriculture economy, and I am proud to represent this world-class university. I was also proud to support the bipartisan Farm Bill, which reforms and strengthens critical agriculture and nutrition programs."

He goes on to say he is pleased to welcome President Obama to East Lansing and applauds the continued support of the strong agricultural community in Michigan.
