WATCH LIVE at 3:30 p.m.: Biden to speak about gun violence
Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava is visiting the White House on Wednesday to join a group that will meet with President Joe Biden and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland to discuss ways to reduce gun violence.
Biden is expected to announce a new plan that stems from the executive orders on gun control that he signed in April. These support the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives efforts against illegal sales.
Jacob Leibenluft, the Treasury’s chief recovery officer, released a statement saying localities can use funds on strategies such as subsidized employment and behavioral health programming, to community violence intervention programs and community policing.
