President Biden to Kick Off “Investing in America” Tour in North Carolina
Biden Administration to barnstorm country to highlight how Biden’s economic agenda is growing the economy from the middle-out and bottom-up, not top down
On Tuesday, March 28th, President Biden will travel to Durham, North Carolina to kick off his Administration’s Investing in America tour. The tour will highlight how President Biden’s Investing in America agenda – including historic investments from the Inflation Reduction Act, the CHIPS and Science Act, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the American Rescue Plan – is unleashing a manufacturing boom, helping rebuild our infrastructure and bring back supply chains, lowering costs for hardworking families, and creating jobs that don’t require a four-year degree across the country.
From shovels hitting the ground on new infrastructure projects made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to new electric vehicle manufacturing facilities as a result of the Inflation Reduction Act, to communities benefitting from high-speed internet because of the American Rescue Plan, to new semiconductor fabs thanks to the CHIPS and Science Act, the tour will highlight how the President’s Investing in America agenda is growing the economy from the middle-out and bottom-up, not top down.
Over the next three weeks, President Biden, Vice President Harris, First Lady Jill Biden, Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, members of the Cabinet, and senior White House officials will visit over 20 states to highlight the impact of the President’s Investing in America agenda.
Prior to the Investing in America tour, the White House will hold an Investing in America Cabinet meeting on Monday, March 27, where Cabinet Members from across the Administration will come together to discuss how their agencies are working together to implement the President’s agenda to expand economic opportunity in every state across the country, create good-paying jobs, and lower costs for American families.
