Buttigieg toured the airport in Gary where the facility made improvements to the cargo operations which supports manufacturing and national supply chains.
Buttigieg will end his day in Indiana in Elkhart to celebrate a $2.6 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant, that is going to help eliminate a railroad crossing that has long been a major issue in the community.
"We need to make sure that communities of all types and sizes, and frankly of all political dispositions, are all benefiting from this infrastructure law. We didn't set it up for red states or blue states or purple states, we set it up for America to thrive," Buttigieg said.
"And the needs are different in a place like Gary than they are in a place like Jackson, Kentucky where I was not that long ago. But every community has a set of infrastructure needs and every community is better off now that we have this funding and now that we're getting to work putting it to use," he went on to say.
