The U.S. ranks 13th worldwide for investments in infrastructure and President Joe Biden says the $1.3 trillion dollar infrastructure law will help change that.
Speaking at the Portland Airbase, the President said the money will improve airports, bridges, highways, and broadband across the country.
Biden also addressed inflation saying the pandemic and the Russian war in Ukraine are the main reasons for high prices.
He called on Congress to pass the bipartisan Innovation Bill to make more computer chips at home to alleviate the shortage affecting the auto industry.
Biden travels to Seattle tonight and plans to discuss climate change issues tomorrow on Earth Day.
