HOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLNS)—President Biden is visiting Howell Township today to speak about his “Build Back Better” plan.
6 News anchor Chivon Kloepfer covered Biden’s arrival as he was welcomed by Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin and Lansing Mayor Andy Schor.
The “Build Back Better Agenda” is said to create jobs, cut taxes, and lower costs for working families, however, this plan is opposed by Republicans, as they ask where the funds will come from.
The agenda is being debated in Congress and one of the biggest issues being questioned is just how many wealthy and large corporations will have to pay, alongside many other things.
The President landed at the Capital Region International Airport and visited the Operating Engineers facility in Howell Township, where he was accompanied by Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
Local Republicans are holding an event to oppose President Biden’s visit today in Howell Township. We will also be covering that event on our website and throughout the day.
Whitmer announced that she was at the event today “to promote the President’s bipartisan infrastructure plan, a critical step toward upgrading the state’s roads, bridges, and other infrastructure while also creating countless good-paying jobs.”
