Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff will visit Las Vegas on Monday to promote the US $ 1.9 trillion bailout plan approved by Congress on Wednesday.
Harris and Emhoff should also visit Denver on Tuesday, according to a White House recommendation. The White House has not released details of the Vice President’s visit to Las Vegas.
President Joe Biden will also travel to discuss the benefits of the plan, which will deliver more than $ 4.5 billion to Nevada for state and local governments, schools, and transportation. Biden will be visiting Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Tuesday, according to the White House.
Harris gave Biden credit for passing the bill on Wednesday. After swearing in Marcia Fudge as the new Secretary for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Harris returned to the stage to answer a reporter’s yelled question.
“I have to tell you, Joe Biden made this possible,” Harris said, according to a White House pool press report. “And it’s a very important day for the children of America, American families, and small businesses. It is a very important day for what we can do now to make sure everyone has access to the help they need. “
“People are just trying to survive,” she added.
