Vice President Kamala Harris has a scheduled visit in North Carolina on Monday.
According to Harris’ itinerary, She’ll be promoting President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan at Guilford Technical College in Greensboro before meeting with Gov. Roy Cooper later in the afternoon.
Cooper will also be with Harris for her visit at GTC. They will also tour the Thomas Built Buses manufacturing plant in High Point.
This is Harris’ first visit to The Tar Heel State since taking office in January. She made several campaign stop in North Carolina last year including one in Charlotte to greet supporters at Truist Field on Oct. 21.
The President’s plan would cost nearly $2 trillion for infrastructure upgrades across the nation. The bill should have support from both the Republican and Democrats, but Biden is having trouble selling the hefty price tag to Americans.
However, he looks at this as an opportunity for the U.S. to catch up with the world. The proposal would include an overhaul of bridges, roads, technology and our power grid.
“I’m going to push as hard as I can, to compete with the rest of the world,” Biden told reporters at the White House about the plan as he returned from an Easter weekend trip to Camp David.
Harris is expected to arrive in North Carolina later this morning.
