US Vice President Kamala Harris Visits Wisconsin IAC
In May 2021, US Vice President Kamala Harris highlighted the Industrial Assessment Center (IAC). When Harris visited the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, she confirmed to promote the Biden administration’s planned investment in American infrastructure.
Harris talked at a small roundtable discussion about what the $2.3 trillion legislative package would mean for sustainable energy, research innovation, and education, and she toured some of the energy research labs in the College of Engineering & Applied Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to highlight a clean energy economy.
The discussion focused on Milwaukee where the city had once been the machine shop of the nation. But now, the area needs smart investments in energy and manufacturing to create the innovations necessary to solve current-day problems.
