Yarmuth Says Stimulus Funds Could Come To Kentucky Soon

Kentucky 3rd District Congressman John Yarmuth says the commonwealth could see the first benefits from the federal stimulus package within the next few months.The $787 billion package is up for a final vote in the Senate this evening. Yarmuth says if it passes, money will become available for projects within the next 90 days. But funding won't come in the form of checks to states or cities and much of it will have to be applied for."The state will have money that it has available to it on a discretionary basis and the federal government, through its normal allocation process will have some of this money as well," he says.Yarmuth says the package includes about 1.2 billion for education funding in Kentucky.
