Harris pitches $2.3T spending plan on trip to North Carolina
JAMESTOWN, N.C. (AP) - Vice President Kamala Harris visited central North Carolina to pitch the Biden administration’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure and jobs plan.
Monday’s trip marked Harris’ first visit to the state since getting sworn in to office.
She spoke at Guilford Technical Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Campus and later toured a Thomas Built Buses plant in High Point.
Harris said the proposal is a ``once-in-a-lifetime, once-in-a-generation’' investment in America’s future.
She highlighted many items in the plan beyond the proposed transportation infrastructure.
She emphasized spending for workforce training, getting rid of lead drinking pipes and building up child care capacity.
