LAS VEGAS (AP) — The $1.9 trillion economic recovery package approved by Congress includes about $4 billion for Nevada, with funds for the state, counties, cities, schools and transportation.
Congresswoman Dina Titus says the state government will get $2.9 billion, Clark County is expected to see $439 million and the city of Las Vegas was allocated $130 million.
Clark County schools are expected to get more than $835 million. Congressional approval on Wednesday came with Democrats in support and Republicans united in opposition.
President Joe Biden pushed for the coronavirus recovery bill. He said he'll sign it Friday.
