Biden to address Congress tonight. Here’s how to watch – CNET


Biden will address Congress on Wednesday.


On Wednesday night, President Joe Biden will address Congress for the first time since being elected. Biden is expected to lay out his plan for the US as the country starts to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden will reportedly cover a variety of topics, including the US’ vaccination efforts, economic recovery, infrastructure, immigration reform, policing practices and the environment. He’s also expected to talk about the American Families Plan, unveiled Wednesday, which aims to bolster the middle class by extending tax cuts for families with children and for workers and extending free public education by four years. 

The address, notably, is not a State of the Union address. According to CBS News, every president since Ronald Reagan has called their first speech before Congress something else, aside from a State of the Union, even if the speeches serve much the same function.

The speech comes as Biden is about to mark his first 100 days in office on Thursday.

What time is Biden speaking tonight?
