First Lady Jill Biden will swing through Denver Monday as part of a national tour to tout the president’s economic initiatives.
The full details of the trip were not immediately available Friday morning. The White House has been highlighting the results of a slew of bills passed during the Democratic trifecta of President Joe Biden’s first two years in office. That includes the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, CHIPS and Science Act, and Inflation Reduction Act.
The four sweeping bills totaled some $4 trillion, though some of the bills spread the spending over years.
Jill Biden, who has a doctorate degree in education, will be highlighting career training and learning programs aimed at high school and community college students to prepare them for jobs the bills are aimed at.
A White House handout highlights billions of dollars the acts direct toward Colorado and private sector investments in the state that have followed the passage of those bills. Colorado has also been campaigning to win a “tech hub” designation under the CHIPS Act.
Jill Biden’s visit to Colorado follows Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to Arvada to discuss climate change in early March. President Joe Biden visited the state in October to designate the 84-square-mile Camp Hale-Continental Divide National Monument. Jill Biden previously visited the state in March 2022.
