WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine will travel to the City of Franklin and the Richmond Marine Terminal (Formerly Port of Richmond)  to discuss the importance of investments in workforce development and infrastructure to promote economic growth.

In the morning, Kaine, a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee, will join Paul D. Camp Community College President Dr. Dan Lufkin for a roundtable discussion with local community workforce development leaders and campus faculty and staff on the need to increase access to affordable higher education. They will also discuss the importance of workforce training and career and technical education (CTE) programs that help students gain experience and training necessary to prepare them for the high paying jobs of tomorrow.

Later, Kaine will travel to the Richmond Marine Terminal (Formerly Port of Richmond) where he will receive an update on investments to deepen the port to allow larger ships and efforts to increase trade. Deepening the port and expanding access will dramatically bolster the container capacity and economic competitiveness of the terminal.
