President Biden Announces the Build Back Better Framework

Last week, the White House announced President Biden’s Build Back Better Framework that will guide the drafting of legislative language in the Build Back Better Act. The President hopes, “this framework will set the United States on course to meet its climate goals, create millions of good-paying jobs, enable more Americans to join and remain in the labor force, and grow our economy from the bottom up and the middle out.”

While it remains to be seen if there is enough support from both Democrats and Republicans to pass this legislation, you can read the fact sheet here. Some of the topics outlined include: childcare, climate change, healthcare, housing and education.
