Transcript for Biden signs $1.2T infrastructure bill: 'America is moving again'
Back here at home president Biden signing that bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill saying the message is America is moving again. Let's go to our cleave white house correspondent Cecilia Vega. Cecilia, when will communities start to see the impact of the bill that was just signed? Good morning. Reporter: That is the big question and officials say some money will go immediately out to ports and airports and roads to start projects. The governor of New York says residents in that state won't have to see increases in fare hikes on the subway or cuts in services because they're expecting such a big windfall in this. Let me give you a sense of where the white house is focused. President Biden is traveling to New Hampshire today. He will be visiting a bridge that's been on a red list because it's in such horrible condition. You can see it there. Tomorrow headed to Detroit visiting GM's electric vehicle assembly plant. Look, no coincidence these are in two battleground states given his sinking approval ratings. Get out there and convince Americans that they will benefit directly from this new law. You ask that question, robin, I pushed the white house, when are most Americans going to see the impacts? They say this plan isn't meant to be like the short-term stimulus plans that we've seen in the past that we are talking about a long game here and you know this, many of these projects, robin, like clean water and widespread internet access, that's going to take a long time for communities to see. It will, and overnight president Biden had that meeting with China's president. It went longer than expected, Cecilia. Reporter: Yeah, it sure did. 3 1/2 hours on both sides. Look, these are two leaders who have known each other a long time and covered Afghanistan to North Korea, Iran, these tensions with Taiwan, climate change, of course, interestingly the white house says that trade wasn't a major topic but, robin, one senior administration official says it was respectful, straightforward and open. There was some progress made in terms of the conversation and the number of issues that they covered but no major breakthroughs here, robin. All right, Cecilia, covering the white house for us, as always, thank you.
