U.S. House Approves Billions for Pennsylvania

The Congress voted to approve the Biden 1.9 Trillion dollar spending package 219-212 largely along party lines (with 2 Democrats joining unanimous GOP opposition to the spending plan).  More than half the funding in the bill is for non-covid expenses, but some of the Covid expenses include $1,400 stimulus checks for many Americans as well as $350 Billion for State and Local governments.  Congressional budget figures say Pennsylvania will get $13.1 Billion, $7.349 going to state government and $2.619 slated for county governments.  It is estimated that townships will get $1.235 billion direct although the City of Philadelphia will qualify for $1.331 billion, more than all the townships in PA combined.
