HOWELL, Mich. – President Joe Biden will be in Howell on Tuesday, Oct. 5, to pitch his infrastructure plan.
Hanging in the balance is the Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure bill waiting for movement in the House. Movement has stalled until the second bill, which looks to expand social programs at the price tag of $3.5 trillion, gets action.
The price is the problem for Republicans and centrist Democrats, who want to spend significantly less.
According to the White House, Biden is going to visit the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 324 training facility in Howell. He is expected to speak there at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The president’s visit could impact afternoon bus routes and student pick-ups in Howell. Parents who pick up their children from school are asked to plan for possible delays in reaching their child’s school.

As negotiations continue and tempers flare on Capitol Hill billions of dollars are at stake for Michigan.
In the president’s full Build Back Better plan Michigan is slated to get get billions of dollars for sweeping changes on everything from child care to taxes on wealthy Americans to jobs.
