COLUMBUS, Ohio — Vice President Kamala Harris arrives in Columbus Friday to discuss how the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package benefits Ohio.

Harris is scheduled to tour the Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 189 and meet apprentices with Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh. At approximately 3:20 p.m., Harris will deliver remarks on how the deal will help Ohioans.

President Joe Biden signed the infrastructure package bill into law on Monday. It’s set to deliver federal investments to America’s infrastructure, everything from bridges and roads to water and energy systems.

Under the law, Ohio is expected to receive $9.2 billion in federal-aid highway-appointed programs and $483 million for bridge replacement and repairs.
