Biden speaks to National Association of Counties Legislative Conference: Watch live

Recorded earlier

President Biden on Monday morning is addressing local leaders from across the country who are gathered in Washington for the National Association of Counties Legislative Conference.

Support for regional infrastructure has been a prominent theme for the Biden administration. Along with strong employment figures and a robust economy generally, Biden’s reelection campaign has pointed to public construction projects as part of a successful post-pandemic recovery.

Later this week, the president will visit East Palestine, Ohio, to underscore a continued commitment to remediating the damage from last year’s train wreck and toxic spill. Republican critics of the administration have asked why Biden didn’t visit earlier.

The president is expected to speak at 11 a.m. EST.
