West Virginia MetroNews – Gov. Jim Justice continues to push back on criticism that the state isn’t expediting the rollout of federal CARES Act relief. Read full article.
“At the end of the day, we’re going to some way, some how, disburse every last dollar of this CARES money before December the 30th,” the governor said today, referring to the deadline. “One way or another.”
So there’s about a billion dollars left.
“With nearly a billion dollars left and less than three months to go, we’d like to see Governor Justice reallocate some of the remaining CARES Act funding to those who are still facing the brunt of the economic crisis,” said Kelly Allen, director of the economic think tank.
“Other states are using this funding to provide utility assistance, rent and mortgage relief, and funding for testing and tracing efforts. We must get remaining aid to where it is most needed while we can.”
