President Biden Meets With Industry Leaders To Address Supply Chain

Biden Supply Cbs

President Biden is heading to Minnesota to promote parts of his infrastructure plan, as well as his social spending and climate agenda.

The administration plans to address supply chain problems and find potential solutions.

On Monday he met with several top business leaders to talk about ways to ease backups and rising prices.

One of the steps they mentioned was getting rid of some traffic fees for containers moved over nights and weekends during January.

Another step was extending flexibility on the number of hours some truckers can drive during February.

While that’s happening, the yet-to-be-signed “Build Back Better Act” is supposed to help with inflation, but some Republicans disagree.

Senate Democrats say they plan to have the social spending bill worked out and on the president’s desk by Christmas.
