House Final ARPA Legislation

Last week, the House engrossed a $3.8 billion pandemic recovery spending plan that combines federal Fiscal Recovery Funds (FRF) and the state’s fiscal year (FY) 2021 surplus.  Over two days of debate, House members added $173.6 million in spending to the initial House Ways and Means proposal.  The final House bill is $344 million less than Governor Baker’s legislative proposals to spend these resources.
