President Joe Biden speaks during a tour of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, Tuesday on the campus of The Ohio State University Tuesday, March 23, 2021, in Columbus, Ohio.

President Biden stopped in Columbus yesterday to promote the passage of the $1.9 trillion dollar stimulus package and the help it offers to families, especially those living in poverty.

In his remarks, the president touted the $1,400 stimulus checks for most families and an increase in the child tax credit. Researchers say the legislation could reduce poverty by one-third.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we look at two aspects of the new law, lifting children out of poverty, and federal aid for struggling cities and municipalities.
