Beshear Signs Federal Relief Bills
By The Associated Press
FRANKFORT - Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear has signed bills directing federal pandemic relief money for some big-ticket priorities.

Those items include clean-water projects and repayment of a federal unemployment insurance loan.

Beshear said Wednesday the federal aid offers a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” for long-term investments to attract businesses, create jobs and improve quality of life for many Kentuckians.

State government in Kentucky is expected to eventually receive about $2.6 billion in federal aid.

Republican Senate President Robert Stivers says the investments create “an economic dynamic for future expansion."

The spending measures passed shortly before this year's legislative session ended.
