Senator Jack Reed, a senior member of the appropriations committee, secures another $42.7M for RI, funding numerous community driven projects.
Reed, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, helped pass four key spending bills out of committee this week, ensuring Rhode Island gets its fair share of federal resources and racking up several wins for the Ocean State during the appropriations process.
“From strengthening our economy, to supporting national defense, to confronting climate change, and creating good-paying jobs, these appropriations bills provide necessary funding to address pressing challenges and build a better future,” said Senator Reed.
“The federal funding in these bills are a big win for Rhode Islanders, especially our working families, seniors, small businesses, and more. I’ll continue working to ensure Rhode Island gets the federal resources it needs to strengthen our economy and help move our country forward.”
Senator Reed secured earmarks in the bill to fund numerous community-driven projects across Rhode Island.
