The Federal Money Spending Challenge: What’s Next for Massachusetts?

Some of the $4 billion of the federal funds allocated to Massachusetts from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) have been spoken for. But the discussion between Gov. Charlie Baker and the Legislature over how to spend the remaining $2.3 billion in ARPA funds is very much alive. How are key lawmakers making spending decisions as a recently passed $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill directs even more federal aid to Massachusetts?

It’s a once-in-a-generation position to use billions in federal dollars for projects and initiatives all across the state. The choices legislators and administration officials make in the next few months will impact generations to come. Join MASSterList for a virtual State House News Forum with Rep. Dan Hunt, chair of the House Committee on Federal Stimulus and Census Oversight, MassBudget President Marie-Frances Rivera, Lizzi Weyant of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and Doug Howgate of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, all hosted by State House News Service reporter Chris Lisinski.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for groups and organizations of all sizes. For more information, contact Dylan Rossiter,
