On a virtual campaign event for Joe Biden, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris and Minnesota union heads touted the Democratic presidential candidate’s newly released environmental, economy and infrastructure plan.

Biden announced the $2 trillion, four-year plan on Tuesday, July 14, which he says will create jobs in the building, manufacturing, engineering and energy sectors as Americans continue to lose their jobs amid the coronavirus pandemic economic fallout. According to the New York Times, the plan promises environmentally conscious projects to improve transportation, wastewater and broadband infrastructure, as well as affordable housing and green energy.
