President Joe Biden is slated to make his second visit to Michigan since taking office in January, the White House announced Tuesday morning.
He is scheduled to tour the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn on May 18. That will be before Ford plans to launch of the electric version of the F-150 pickup truck May 19, the Detroit News reports. As part of his $2 trillion infrastructure plan, Biden has proposed spending $174 million on electric vehicle technology.
“President @JoeBiden‘s second visit to our state shows the significance of Michigan — not just politically, but as a model for how our country can #BuildBackBetter by investing in a clean energy future,” tweeted Michigan Democratic Party Chair Lavora Barnes.
In February, Biden joined Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to tour Pfizer’s Portage facility where the COVID-19 vaccine is manufactured.
