The White House announced earlier this morning that Obama "will deliver a statement in the Brady Press Briefing Room about the policy process the administration will pursue in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. The Vice President will also attend."
According to multiple reports, Obama is not expected to lay out any specific policy plans in the wake of the Newtown tragedy. He will introduce the task force and give an idea of how the administration plans to proceed.
Obama's decision to tap Biden as the task force's leader makes sense, considering the Vice President's experience in the Senate and relationship with members of Congress.
