Some lawmakers brought concerns that the bill doesn’t detail how much money will specifically go to each county.
“I think that we should have some degree of knowledge as to a breakdown — like anything else we have — we know what’s coming back to our areas,” Rep. Juandalynn Givan (D- Birmingham) said.
House leaders say that information will be available online through the groups that distribute the funds like ADEM or ADECA.
“I just went on the ADEM website, and I could see specific projects within my county and a dollar amount. Obviously, we had to pass the bill today, and then they’ll approve more applications but right now they can go in there and see what we passed in 2022 and what’s the status of those projects,” Rep. Rex Reynolds (R- Huntsville) said.
