Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen of the Biden administration will visit Detroit to promote the administration’s support for small businesses in Michigan and across the US. This visit comes at a crucial time for President Biden, as he recently drew support and opposition in Michigan during a campaign rally at the United Auto Workers hall. Meanwhile, protesters demonstrated outside, calling for military restraint on Israel and a cease-fire in Gaza.

During her visit to Detroit, Yellen will attend several events to promote three pieces of legislation – the Lower Inflation Act, the bipartisan Infrastructure Act, and the CHIPS and Science Act. She will be joined by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer at the Detroit Economic Club and will visit Michigan Central to take a tour and join a panel discussion with US Senator Debbie Stabenow and local entrepreneurs.

The visit will highlight the administration’s small business development efforts and celebrate what it calls the “small business boom” in the US economy. With 16 million new business applications filed in the administration’s first three years, Yellen has made similar visits to Illinois and Wisconsin. Her most recent visit to Michigan was in September 2022 when she delivered remarks at Ford’s Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.
