Henry I. Stern
- District 27
On Feb 24, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) was introduced in the United States Congress. The stimulus package, if enacted into law, would, among other things, provide funding for economic relief payments to state, local, tribal, and territorial governments to speed up the United States' recovery from the economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing recession. This bill would require, to the extent authorized by federal law, a state agency that receives and disburses ARP funds or other federal recovery funds to consider projects' potential impact on specified goals, including, among other things, restoring frontline communities and rapidly accelerating achievement of environmental justice and climate goals, including, but not limited to, climate, environmental, and biodiversity protection and stimulating growth. The bill would require state agencies to document how proposed projects meet or align with the goals and require the Labor and Workforce Development Agency to establish an internet website where the public can track the expenditure of federal ARP funds by the state and how funded projects meet the goals.
