Harris To Visit Pittsburgh on Monday
Vice President Kamala Harris will be in Pittsburgh on Monday.
According to a press release from the Office of the Vice President, Harris and Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh will be traveling to Pittsburgh on June 21.
Harris and Walsh will lead off the visit by delivering remarks marking Child Tax Credit Awareness Day and “highlighting the importance of the Child Tax Credit.” Later in the afternoon, Harris and Walsh will hold a roundtable at IBEW Local Union 5 as part of the Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment.
This will be the first official visit for Harris in Pennsylvania since being sworn-in as Vice President. President Joe Biden has made multiple appearances in the commonwealth since being sworn-in, with his most recent visit being in Philadelphia in late April to promote his infrastructure plan during an event celebrating Amtrak’s 50th Anniversary.
Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff, husband of Harris, visited the commonwealth in early May to promote President Joe Biden’s administration’s economic plan in Allentown.
Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg is the most recent member of Biden’s administration to visit Pittsburgh. Buttigieg visited Pittsburgh in early May to also promote Biden’s American Jobs Plan.
