FIRST ON FOX: As the House of Representatives returns from August recess, the White House is "laser focused" on getting President Biden's spending plan passed, saying, in a new memo to House Democrats, that the passage of the plan is "urgent," and will lead to more economic growth.
In a memo to House Democratic communications directors obtained by Fox News, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield lays out the "messaging" around Biden's "Build Back Better Agenda."
The White House rolled out Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Jobs Plan earlier this year, which is his proposal to rebuild the nation’s infrastructure, while pumping money into manufacturing, transportation, renewable energy and combating climate change.
The White House, also earlier this year, introduced Biden’s $1.8 trillion American Families Plan, which calls for universal "high-quality preschool" for all 3- and 4-year-olds.

The plan would also provide two years of free community college to be made available to all Americans, in addition to offering new funding for historically Black colleges and other minority-serving institutions. The plan offers a renewed focus on teacher training, as well as expanded child tax credits and a national paid leave program.
"Thank you for the work your bosses did in their districts over the course of the August work period to spread the word of the urgent need for the Build Back Better agenda, and the positive impact it will have on communities across the country," Bedingfield wrote.
