Doug Emhoff, husband of Vice President Kamala Harris, is scheduled to visit Allentown on May 5. 

The second gentleman is headed to the Lehigh Valley to promote President Biden’s $4 trillion infrastructure plan

Biden administration officials are traveling around the country as part of a “Getting America Back on Track” tour to drum up support for the legislation.

The announcement of Biden’s plan earlier this spring sparked a conversation about a possibility of a return to passenger train service to the area. 

Full details of the Allentown trip are not yet public, but following Emhoff’s visit he’s slated to head to Memphis, Tennessee with the Department of Labor Secretary, Marty Walsh.
