WASHINGTON – The Consolidated Appropriations Act (2023) was enacted. Seven leading organizations representing state or local governments at the federal levels thanked Congress for allowing them to use funds from the American Rescue Plan Act for infrastructure, neighborhood revitalization and disaster relief.

The National Governors Association, Council of State Governments, National Conference of State Legislatures, National Association of Counties, National League of Cities, U.S. Conference of Mayors, and the International City/County Management Association were grateful for the inclusion of S. 5323, the bipartisan State, Local Tribal and Territorial Fiscal Recovery, Infrastructure and Disaster Relief Flexibility Act (S.5323), which was introduced in part by Senator John Cornyn and Sen. Alex Padilla.

This measure provides additional flexibility under the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds that were included in the American Rescue Plan Act and will support state and local governments to continue leading America’s recovery.
