ICYMI: President, Vice President, Senior Administration Officials To Kick Off 2023 Highlighting Impact of President’s Economic Plan, Including Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
To kick off 2023, the President, Vice President, and Senior Administration Officials will blanket the country to highlight how the President’s economic plan – including his success bringing Republicans, Independents, and Democrats together to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – is growing our economy from the bottom up and middle out.
On Wednesday, January 4th, President Biden will visit the Greater Cincinnati area on the Kentucky side, and he will be joined by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Sherrod Brown, Governor Andy Beshear, and Governor Mike DeWine. Vice President Harris will visit Chicago, Illinois and Secretary of Transportation Buttigieg will visit New London, Connecticut. On Thursday, January 5th, Speaker Nancy Pelosi will join White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu during his visit to San Francisco.
The President, Vice President, and Senior Administration Officials will discuss how the President’s economic plan is rebuilding our infrastructure, creating good-paying jobs – jobs that don’t require a four-year degree, and revitalizing communities that have been left behind.
