WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush is taking a bill-signing ceremony on the road for the second time this week, heading to Pennsylvania to sign legislation to clean up thousands of polluted industrial sites.

Bush was traveling to Conshohocken, Pa., to sign the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownsfields Revitalization Act, a five-year plan to provide up to $250 million a year to states, local governments and Indian tribes to clean up the sites, known as brownfields.

Friday's trip was the seventh time Bush has visited Pennsylvania since taking office a year ago. It was his second journey this week away from Washington for a bill signing; Tuesday, the president went to Ohio to sign education legislation into law.
