KY Getting Federal Relief

Kentucky’s budget director says state government is forecast to eventually receive about $2.4 billion from the latest round of federal pandemic relief.The state’s share gives lawmakers more funding opportunities but little time to incorporate any of it into the state budget for the coming year starting July 1st. Budget director John Hicks said Tuesday that a separate infusion of about $1.6 billion from the federal package is expected to go to Kentucky’s local governments.
