Senate Final ARPA Legislation

Last week, the Senate passed a $3.8 billion recovery plan that uses a combination of Fiscal Recovery Funds (FRF) and fiscal year 2021 (FY) surplus revenues. In one day of debate, the Senate adopted 388 amendments which added $154.4 million in spending to the original Senate Ways and Means (SWM) proposal. The final Senate bill is $724,000 less than the House version of the legislation and $345.1 million less than the Governor’s ARPA and surplus legislation.
