The event is among several stops Buttigieg has been making to tout the work being done as a result of the new law. Kansas will receive $3.2 billion targeting brick-and-mortar infrastructure projects like roads and bridges.

The office of Rep. Sharice Davids, D-Kan., confirmed that she will be with Buttigieg on his visit. Before her election in 2018, Davids had worked at the U.S. Department of Transportation as a White House Fellow.

President Joe Biden visited Kansas City, Mo., last month in an attempt to build support for his Build Back Better spending measure. Then, he spoke at the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority.
