President Biden travels to Michigan today to highlight legislation he says is helping grow the nation’s economy. The President will make remarks at a new semi-conductor manufacturing facility

White House officials say Biden will tout an American competitiveness bill passed by Congress this summer which provides incentives for companies to create semiconductor chips in the U.S.

The market for the chips, used in everything from motor vehicles to medical equipment, has been dominated by China and other countries outside the U.S.

Biden is also expected to touch on Democrats success in the recent mid-term elections where concerns over inflation and the economy were a key issue for voters.

The visit comes as Biden is calling on Congress to force freight railroad unions to accept a new contract and avoid a strike that could cripple economic supply chains right before the holiday season.
