ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — President Barack Obama is taking his “year of action” tour to Minnesota, heading to St. Paul on Wednesday to announce a new competition encouraging investments to create jobs and restore infrastructure.

The White House says Obama will speak at Union Depot on Wednesday. The event is open to the public but attendees will need tickets.

Tickets will be handed out free on a first-come, first-served basis starting Monday at 10 a.m. at the Union Depot, Suite 120. There’s a limit of one ticket per person.

The actual event will be Wednesday. Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.

Attendees won’t be allowed to bring bags, signs or banners, and they’ll pass through airport-like security.

Vice President Joe Biden was in Minneapolis last week for a fundraiser at a restaurant owned by the sons of DFL Gov. Mark Dayton.
