What is included for Russell County in state funding bill?

The state legislature passed House Bill 1 last week, a state funding bill totaling more than $2 billion.

The bill includes funding for projects across the state, with a couple major local projects included.

The bill includes $3 million to go to the Department of Local Government budget unit to be distributed to the Russell County Fiscal Court to support the Russell County Library Community Development Center project.

The bill also includes $10 million to go to the Department of Local Government budget unit to be distributed to the Russell County Fiscal Court to support a hospital expansion.

The funding measure also includes a total of $8.5 million over the next two fiscal years to go to the Department of Local Government budget unit to be distributed to the Lake Cumberland Area Development District for a regional training center.

The bill now goes to Governor Andy Beshear to be signed or vetoed.
