ABC6: Rhode Island Rebound: Gov. McKee submits plan to invest federal funds into RI families
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- Governor Dan McKee officially summitted a plan for immediate investments into Rhode Island’s families, workers, and small businesses Thursday.
“Rhode Island is the only state in the northeast that has not spent one dollar of this American rescue plan funds,” McKee said in a press conference Thursday.
McKee filed a supplemental budget on Thursday with the General Assembly for his Rhode Island Rebound plan, where the state will invest 10% of the $1.1 billion American Rescue Plan State Fiscal Recovery Funds into short-term investments towards families, children, workers, and small businesses directly impacted by the pandemic.
