Pres. Biden delivers remarks on his American Rescue Plan | USA TODAY

President Biden delivers remarks on the implementation of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.

President Joe Biden has tapped Gene Sperling, a veteran economic policy expert who worked under the previous two Democratic presidents, to oversee the implementation of his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki announced Sperling’s role as the American Rescue Plan czar at Monday’s press briefing.

Sperling served as director of the National Economic Council and assistant to the president for economic policy under former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. He also worked as a senior official for Treasurer Secretary Larry Summers in the Clinton administration and founded the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution, a left-leaning policy think tank.

“Gene has spent more than a decade at the highest level of government,” Psaki said, calling his background ideal for the breadth of the sweeping plan. “The president felt it was important to have a point person who could, of course, pull all of these levers.”
