ICYMI: In Michigan, President Biden Champions Infrastructure Plan As “Blue Collar Blueprint to Rebuild America”

Today, on his fifth visit to the Great Lakes state since he took office, President Biden traveled to Detroit to highlight the historic investments that will be made in Michigan thanks to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. At Factory ZERO, the new assembly plant where GM will make their transition to electric vehicle manufacturing, President Biden touted how his infrastructure plan lowers costs for working families, fights the climate crisis, and provides good-paying, union jobs for Michiganders.

Joined by several members of Michigan’s Democratic delegation, including Sens. Gary Peters and Gary Peters, and Reps. Debbie Dingell, Dan Kildee, Brenda Lawrence, Andy Levin, Haley Stevens, and Rashida Tlaib, the President thanked Michigan Democrats for their tireless work ensuring his infrastructure deal made it across the finish line in Congress.

As Rep. Dingell said, “Michigan put the world on wheels a century ago” — and thanks to President Biden, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and Michigan Democrats, the Great Lakes State will remain a leader in the automotive industry.
