IN THE STATES: Biden Agenda Drives Infrastructure Investments

In the states this week, local news was full of headlines about how President Biden’s economic plan is delivering for communities across the country while MAGA Republicans continue to push extremism. 

Today, President Biden and Vice President Harris visited Philadelphia to announce that – thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the American Rescue Plan – the city will be one of many to receive funding for water upgrades and lead pipe service removal over the next decade. 

On Tuesday, the Biden-Harris administration announced Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding for projects across the country that will create good-paying jobs, grow the economy, strengthen supply chains, improve mobility for residents, and make transportation systems safer.

And on Monday, Vice President Harris was in Raleigh, North Carolina to tout the administration’s investments in supporting small businesses – a key plank in her and President Biden’s plan to continue helping grow the economy and deliver for working families. 

Meanwhile, Republicans like Glenn Youngkin and Ron Desantis are still trying to push extreme abortion bans in their respective states while Democrats from Minnesota to Virginia are moving forward to protect these rights.
