Vice President Joseph R. Biden will visit America’s Central Port along the Mississippi River in Granite City today.
This visit will mark the fifth anniversary of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and highlight the need for continued investment in infrastructure to create jobs and grow the economy.
“I’m pleased Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Southern Illinois to hear from our workers and see our investment in America’s future with his own eyes,” said Congressman Bill Enyart (D-Illinois).
“Investing in our country, from improving our infrastructure to preparing our workforce for the future, is the best way we can grow our economy,” Enyart said. “We must continue to invest in America so that everyone benefits, not just a select few.”
