Biden suggests COVID restrictions, lockdowns could last another year
Dr. Harvey Risch of the Yale School of Public Health joins ‘The Ingraham Angle’ with reaction
President Biden’s COVID-19 relief package would put $128 billion toward helping K-12 public schools deal with the coronavirus pandemic, but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that just $6 billion would flow to schools in 2021.
The CBO estimates that the number would increase to $32 billion in 2022 and 2023, respectively. The rest of the money would be paid out through 2028, according to a cost estimate released Monday.
- Congress previously approved $31 billion for education relief in the March CARES Act
- The $128.5 billion in Biden’s American Rescue Plan would mainly flow as grants to state and local education agencies to distribute.
