(Jefferson City)–A bipartisan team of lawmakers and agency heads is helping stay on top of massive amounts of federal money coming into Missouri for coping with COVID-19.
The working group appointed by the governor’s first major move Tuesday was to clear 500 million dollars in CARES Act funding to be spread out among counties – and St. Louis City.
State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick chairs the group.

The checks could get to the counties in about a week….once the governor approves the spending.
