Support for Covid-19 Economic Recovery Funding for Montana Local Governments

On Tuesday, May 19, 2020, Montana Infrastructure Coalition (MIC) and its individual members collectively drafted and sent the following letters to Montana’s congressional delegates requesting that further economic recovery funding be routed directly to local governments to ensure that the revenue shortfalls caused by the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders be backfilled with federal relief aid. MIC and its members requests full support of a COVID-response funding package that provides funding directly to local governments to backfill lost revenue to ensure that essential services can continue and more importantly that significant investments can be made in infrastructure for both short and long-term economic benefits.
