SEPTEMBER 20, 2005 - Posted at 7:59 a.m. CDT

WASHINGTON - President Bush is planning to make a stop in Arkansas later this week as part of a trip to review Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

The president is to return to the devastated Gulf Coast region Tuesday.  On Friday and Saturday he is to visit Alabama, Arkansas and Texas, states that have taken in many refugees.

The White House has not said which day Bush will be in Arkansas.

The trip will be the fifth for Bush to the hurricane zone.  Today, he is to meet local officials and business leaders in Gulfport, Mississippi, followed by a stop in New Orleans.
