ROSEMOUNT (Minn.) – President Joe Biden is racing to keep ahead of a new COVID-19 variant, rising inflation and a new COVID-19 version. He visited Minnesota Tuesday to promote his $1 trillion infrastructure law and to push for passage of a $1.75 billion spending measure.
Biden visited New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Michigan to promote the benefits of the bipartisan infrastructure bill and to help improve the Democratic Party’s slumping poll numbers.
Biden visited Rosemount’s Dakota County Technical College on Tuesday. This college is a suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul and offers programs that train people to operate and build infrastructure.
According to Jen Psaki, Jen Psaki’s press secretary, he will be focusing on the “concrete results” of the law, which will help to create union jobs and place America in a position to win and compete in the 21st Century, he told reporters Monday.
Dakota County Tech is home to 2,900 credit-seeking students as well as 10,000 non-credit student. This institution, she said, offers an example of institutions that are capable of training the next generation and rebuilding America’s infrastructure.
White House stated that the infrastructure law and $24 billion of investments in “Build Back Stronger” will provide millions with the skills needed to work in growing sectors.
The House approved the Build Back better bill but moderate Democrats, led by U.S. Democrats, are causing delays and cutting corners. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin
U.S. U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar was with Biden when she traveled to Minnesota. She said that she felt confident that the Senate will take up Build Back Better legislation.
“We only have a few ‘little’ things to work out,” she said.
Biden wanted to add two years of community college free funding in the huge spending bill, but moderate Democrats were concerned about its high price.
The budget still provides $5 billion to community colleges for expanding workforce training programs with employer partners, unions and public system bodies. $5 billion is available for large-scale training in high-demand areas such as education, clean energy and caregiving.
According to the White House, Minnesota will get $4.5 billion federal assistance to repair highways. It also receives about $302million for bridges and an additional $818 million to upgrade public infrastructure.
