Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Columbus on Friday to highlight how President Biden's $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill will impact Ohioans, though a schedule has not yet been released.

Why it matters: This will be Harris' first stop since the bill's Monday signing, underscoring Ohio's significance to its big picture. It will also be her first Columbus appearance since becoming vice president and the second of the administration after Biden visited in March.

What's next: Ahead of Harris' visit, we'll break down the federal funding headed to Ohio in a newsletter later this week. Subscribe here.
