Biden visits Miami, stresses transit funds
by UPI

MIAMI - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden traveled to Miami Thursday to speak to labor union leaders and highlight the administration's aid for transportation projects.

The two-day visit includes an address before the AFL-CIO Executive Council in Miami and a tour of the Miami Intermodal Center with U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, the Miami Herald reported.

The center is a rental car and transit hub being built near Miami International Airport and would connect all modes of transportation: airlines, rental cars, buses and commuter rail transit lines.

In a statement released by his office, Biden said the project is "'just one example of the hundreds of transportation construction projects across the country'' that will receive funds from the stimulus package.

Florida expects to receive about $1.3 billion in stimulus money for transportation projects, the Herald said.

On Friday, Biden is scheduled to visit the Miami Police Department with Diaz and Miami Police Chief John Timoney.
