Pandemic Relief In State Could Top $20 Billion

A new report finds that federal pandemic relief coming to Wisconsin and its local governments totals 20 billion dollars. The report, by the non-partisan Wisconsin Policy Forum, provides the most accurate accounting yet of the nearly 20-billion dollars to Wisconsin from Washington. The report also notes that figure probably understates how much Wisconsin will ultimately get, and that the influx of money from D-C means “communities in the state may be able to address some of their most longstanding needs.”
