President Biden on Monday urged employers to help get more of their workers vaccinated, saying it would provide a boost to the economy, and touted a coming infusion of $350 billion in federal aid to state and local governments, saying that will help more parents get child care and return to work.

Ahead of his wide-ranging remarks on the economy, Biden called the ransomware attack that led to the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline “a criminal act” and vowed that “my administration takes this very seriously.”

Here’s what to know:

  • The Biden administration said it would provide protections against discrimination in health care based on gender identity and sexual orientation, reversing a policy of its predecessor.
  • The Colonial Pipeline cyberattack — believed to be the biggest on American oil infrastructure — prompted the White House to pull together a task force.
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), one of the earliest congressional Republican critics of President Donald Trump’s election conspiracy theories, said he warned Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) a few days before the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol that adopting Trump’s rhetoric would lead to violence.
  • White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden would still like to see an infrastructure bill on his desk by summer.
