Senator Brian Williams Returns to State Capitol to Vote on Important Funding Legislation
JEFFERSON CITY – State Sen. Brian Williams, D-University City, and members of the Missouri Senate will return to the State Capitol this week to discuss and debate two spending proposals, House Bill 2014 and House Bill 2456. House Bill 2014 provides additional funding to state departments and agencies in an effort to assist the state’s response to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. House Bill 2456 reauthorizes the state’s Federal Reimbursement Allowance (FRA) Program.
As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Sen. Williams will be one of a handful of senators considering both of these bills on Tuesday, April 7.
“I believe it is imperative that we pass the supplemental spending bill as soon as possible,” Sen. Williams said. “As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to rise in our state, it is vital that we pass this additional funding measure. Our state’s agencies and departments are on the frontline battling against this devastating virus, and this funding measure will give them the tools needed to help countless Missourians.”
The full Senate is scheduled to return to the State Capitol on Wednesday, April 8.
