SPOTLIGHT

1. STATE OF THE UNION:

Obama pursues Steel City credentials in Marcellus gas country

With the State of the Union speech behind him, President Obama today is heading to a U.S. Steel Corp. plant near Pittsburgh, where he'll also stand on top of the region's sprawling natural gas formation. From U.S. Steel's Irvin Plant, rolled steel is shipped to the nation's expanding auto manufacturers. In and around Pittsburgh at the epicenter of a dramatic industrial collapse three decades ago, the president's visit comes as Democrats and Republicans heading into congressional midterm elections try to capitalize on the region's economic resurgence.

2. ELECTRICITY:

2 states feel the market heat as their deregulated neighbors reap rewards

Electric deregulation is getting a fresh look in two Great Lakes states as big energy users see power prices rise while rivals in neighboring states reap the benefits of competition. In Michigan and Indiana, two states hoping to revive energy-hungry manufacturing sectors, pro-competition groups are working to reinvigorate debate over electric restructuring more than a decade after California's electricity crisis and Enron Corp.'s collapse led many states to abandon the idea.
