EP BIDEN VISIT 

PRESIDENT BIDEN PLANS TO TRAVEL TO EAST PALESTINE TO MARK THE ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE NORFOLK SOUTHERN TRAIN DERAILMENT LATER THIS WEEK. 
THE PRESIDENT WILL MAKE HIS WAY TO OHIO FRIDAY, WHERE HE WILL EXPLAIN HOW HIS ADMINISTRATION HAS WORKED WITH STATE AND LOCAL LEADERS TO HOLD NORFOLK SOUTHERN ACCOUNTABLE AND SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY MOVING FORWARD. IN THE YEAR SINCE THE DERAILMENT, THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS OVERSEEN THE REMOVAL OF MORE THAN 174-THOUSAND TONS OF CONTAMINATED SOIL. DESPITE THAT, SOME PEOPLE DECIDED TO LEAVE EAST PALESTINE. MANY OF THOSE WHO STAYED SAY THEY HAVE TRUSTED REPORTS FROM STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES THAT THE AIR, SOIL, AND WATER ARE SAFE.
