Route Fifty's Bill Lucia joins the podcast to discuss how state, city and municipalities fare in the new stimulus bill.
This week, Congress passed a COVID-19 relief bill that does not include direct funding for state and local governments. There is funding for transit and health-related expenses, which will take some of the burden off local governments, but the direct money is not in the massive bill.
Bill Lucia is a Senior Reporter for GovExec singling site Route Fifty. He joined the podcast now to discuss how the relief bill will impact local governments in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis.
