President Biden is hosting labor leaders at an Oval Office meeting Wednesday to discuss two of his leading priorities: his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, which is pending in Congress, and investing in the nation’s infrastructure.

The White House meeting comes amid a stepped-up focus on the pandemic. Speaking at a nationally televised town hall on Tuesday, Biden pledged that any American who wants a vaccine will have access to one by the end of July and said he wants many elementary and middle schools to be open five days a week by the end of April.

Here’s what to know:

  • Last year’s SolarWinds hack compromised nine federal agencies and about 100 private companies, and it was conducted by an actor “likely of Russian origin,” Anne Neuberger, deputy national security adviser for cyber, told reporters during a White House briefing.
  • The Biden administration is supplying emergency power generators to Texas and is prepared to move diesel to the state, where about 3 million people remain in the dark amid a barrage of winter storms that has overwhelmed the electric grid.
  • The White House said Wednesday that Biden agrees with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that vaccinating teachers need not be a requirement for reopening schools safely, answering a question that other White House officials had dodged in recent television appearances.
  • Former president Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), accusing him of a “lack of political insight, wisdom, skill, and personality” just days after the Senate — with McConnell’s help — acquitted Trump on an impeachment charge.
