Visit from POTUS and FLOTUS focused on American Families Plan, which would provide free tuition to community colleges

PORTSMOUTH, VA  – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03), the Chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor, issued the following statement after visiting Tidewater Community College with President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden:

“It was as honor to join President Biden and Dr. Biden today at Tidewater Community College (TCC). TCC is an example of the role that community colleges can have in expanding opportunities for our students and creating jobs in local economies. The American Families Plan would allow all Americans to attend community college tuition-free. This bold plan would give all Americans the opportunity the develop the skills they need to find good-paying jobs and rewarding careers. This proposal is a down payment on a better economy and a better future for the Commonwealth and the country. I am proud to stand with President Biden and Dr. Biden to promote the American Families Plan and – as Chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee – I look forward to taking a leadership role in making this proposal a reality.”
