Updated on Monday, Sept. 13, 2021: The White House now says that President Joe Biden will visit Colorado on Tuesday.

The Democrat is slated to visit the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden.

The White House says Biden will “deliver remarks underscoring how the investments in his Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and Build Back Better Agenda will help tackle the climate crisis, modernize our infrastructure, and strengthen our country’s resilience while creating good-paying, union jobs and advancing environmental justice.”

Biden arrives in Colorado midday and will leave at about 5 p.m.

The NREL event will not be open to all media.

President Joe Biden will make a stop in Denver on Monday as he travels to three Western states.

Biden will participate in a “Build Back Better” event, according to the White House. Further details on his appearance were not released.

On Monday, Biden will also travel to Boise, Idaho, where he will visit the National Interagency Fire Center; Sacramento, California, to survey wildfire damage; and Long Beach, California, to participate in an event with Gov. Gavin Newsom. Newsom is facing a recall election.

Biden’s stop in Colorado will be his first since becoming president. He also didn’t make a public visit to the state during his 2020 presidential campaign, though he attended two private fundraisers in Denver.
