Biden has been touring the Midwest to promote various items of his agenda. His Build Back Better agenda includes the American Rescue Plan, American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan.

The American Families Plan, which is what Biden will be promoting in Crystal Lake, will provide two years of free community college, provide direct support to children and families, extend tax cuts for families with children and American workers, and assist parents with child care expenses.

White House Senior Associate Communications Director Matt Hill made the announcement of Biden’s trip to Illinois on Twitter Saturday evening.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and other democratic leaders are also expected to attend.

Biden traveled around the Midwest last week to promote his $973 billion infrastructure deal, which was recently reached with a bipartisan group of senators.

The president announced on June 25 that he had reached the deal with 11 senators, telling reporters at the White House, “We have a deal. We made serious compromises on both ends.”

CBS News reported that Biden was in La Crosse, Wisconsin on June 29 and in Traverse City, Michigan on Saturday in an effort to get public support for his infrastructure plan.

Members of the president’s administration are also traveling to gather support for the infrastructure plan.

First Lady Jill Biden was in Maine and New Hampshire on Saturday and Vice President Kamala Harris stopped in Las Vegas, Nevada, CBS News reported.
