Energy issues and people with a stake in them figure prominently in the latest batch of visitor records released by the White House.

Those landing meetings with aides to President Barack Obama include General Electric chief executive Jeffrey Immelt, who has roughly a half-dozen scheduled meetings in the records.

The records _ released Wednesday _ show that Immelt was among those scheduled to meet in August with Phil Schiliro, the president's chief legislative liaison to Congress. Other scheduled visitors included climate change expert Jonathan Lash and Paul Hanrahan, the chief executive of major energy company AES.

The records are the latest in a series of visitor logs released voluntarily by the White House.
