Vice President Mike Pence will deliver remarks and participate in a round table discussion on taxes Thursday at a Plainfield, Indiana, graphics company.

Pence will be joined by U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta and Gov. Eric Holcomb at TKO Graphix, located in a suburb of Indianapolis. He is scheduled to participate in the discussion at 5:15 p.m. and deliver remarks at 5:45 p.m.

President Trump visited Indianapolis in September to deliver a speech on tax policy and brought Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana, with him. In his speech, the president threatened Donnelly with heavy opposition campaigning if he did not support the administration's proposed legislation.

Donnelly sent a letter on the subject to Pence on Tuesday, according to a release from the senator's office. 

In his letter, Donnelly welcomed Pence's visit and urged the administration to propose policies that "align with the interests of American workers and that tax benefits support companies that invest here in the United States and penalize those that outsource jobs to foreign countries."
