WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama plans to keep a promise today.

He'll announce the creation of two Pentagon-led institutes that will combine public and private resources to foster manufacturing innovation.

The Canton, Mich., institute will focus on light metal manufacturing.

The one in Chicago will concentrate on high-tech digital manufacturing and design. Obama promised last year to create three manufacturing hubs.
