President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan is the most ambitious infrastructure plan in U.S. history. While the proposal is still far from becoming law, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will play a key role in helping sell it to lawmakers and the American public. In addition to the news of the day, Punchbowl News founders Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman will host a virtual interview with Secretary Buttigieg to discuss the effort to rebuild and modernize the country’s infrastructure, expand broadband, boost U.S. manufacturing, how the pandemic has impacted the airline and cruise line industry, and the future of electric and autonomous vehicles. Austin Ramirez, CEO of Husco and Vice Chair of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ Infrastructure Vision 2050 Task Force, will join Anna and Jake for a fireside chat about the equipment manufacturing industry’s effort to advance a forward-looking national vision for how to build a modern, sustainable, and equitable infrastructure for all Americans to kick off the event.
