Benton County committee discusses allocation for covid-19 cash

BENTONVILLE – Benton County’s finance committee met Tuesday to discuss the allocation of the $ 27 million fund to the US bailout plan.

Congress passed the US $ 1.9 trillion rescue plan in March, which provided financial relief to state and local governments to combat the economic pressures caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Benton County’s Quorum Court set up the fund on May 27 to withhold the money from the federal government until it could decide how best to spend it.

The clawback funds must be due by December 31, 2024 and issued by the same date in 2026. District Judge Barry Möhring suggested holding preliminary exploratory sessions, which would be an extension of the finance committee from the week of July 19th. The meetings would cover both immediate expenditure and items that need further consideration.

Each meeting could have a single focus area, but the August meetings would span larger ideas. Moehring suggested that funding be focused on district employees, district facilities, public health and economic recovery, infrastructure, and the Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee.

When reviewing spending, these members should question whether the spending meets US bailout criteria and whether it solves a problem or benefits Benton County, he said.

Moehring emphasized the importance of transparency, determination and cooperation with the public in determining the use of funds. The process also requires patience as some projects don’t take several years to complete. Some may need to be completed faster than others, but the dish doesn’t have to “eat the whole elephant in one sitting,” said Möhring.

“If we have the right process and are patient, we will achieve the right results,” said Möhring.

Moehring cited ways to deal with the recent negative economic impact, such as accelerating the recovery of the tourism and hospitality sectors, helping small businesses, and helping workers and families.

In addition to helping small businesses, Justice of the Peace Carrie Perrien Smith believes that county process improvements and equipment upgrades would be wise use of money, she said. Smith also cautioned against using grant money to expand the trail system if the maintenance of the trail after the expansion is not taken into account.

Ineligible uses of the money include paying into Rainy Day funds or financial reserves, financing debt servicing, and spending on general infrastructure other than water, sewer, and broadband investments.

Committee members also discussed several remedies during Tuesday’s meeting. They are unanimously donating $ 75,000 from the Cares Act to implement Questys’ document management system in the County Clerk office. The system makes the ongoing process paperless and eliminates document storage.

Additional funding included an additional case manager request for the public defender’s office due to process changes amid the pandemic. The motion was passed after Justice of the Peace Joel Jones requested that the money be drawn from the Cares Act instead of the general fund.

The approved funds will be submitted to the Quorum Court for review.

Price range Committee seems to be to spend cash elsewhere after Reps didn’t fund Medicaid enlargement

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. – After the Missouri House decided last week not to fund Medicaid’s expansion, lawmakers on the House Budgets Committee must now use those funds elsewhere.

The measure, approved by the voters, was passed in August and will take effect on July 1st. However, officials did not approve funding for the nearly $ 35 billion increase in the state budget. House Budgets Chairman Cody Smith (R-Carthage) has moved funding for the expansion to a separate law.

Now, under House Bill 21, the Budget Committee is distributing $ 1 billion to a handful of state agencies, with nearly $ 900 million from the federal government and $ 100 million from the state’s general revenue fund.

Legislation says $ 18 million will be used for school transportation, $ 2 million for adult high schools, $ 26 million for self-catered meals and programs such as adult daycare, $ 88 million for nursing homes and $ 735 for Medicaid reimbursements.

Another agency that would receive money is Missouri’s Office of State Public Defenders for the Public Defender System.

More than $ 1 million would help the department hire 15 additional parole lawyers.

The commission’s executive director, Mary Fox, testified before the committee that this would give the litigation offices additional lawyers.

“We are only asking for three additional attorneys so that their numbers remain reasonable and we don’t have to put anyone on a waiting list or go to court and tell the court that we can’t handle every eligible case,” said Fox.

The sheriff warns people not to come to the ghost town of Missouri anymore

Fox said there are 33 litigation offices in the state.

Before House Bill 21, the system will receive an additional 12 attorneys from the governor’s budget. There are currently around 2,000 people on the waiting list in Missouri who need a trial attorney, according to Fox.

Smith said during the hearing there would be more discussion of House Bill 21 later in the week.

As for the funding of the Medicaid expansion, the Senate has yet to debate and approve the state budget. The senators could add the funds for the expansion.

Last week, Governor Mike Parson said he needed the Senate to fund Medicaid’s expansion.

Benton County Finance Committee discusses CARES cash

BENTONVILLE – Benton County is providing $ 100,000 to be used as needed for upcoming Covid-19 vaccination events in the county.

The finance committee began a discussion Thursday evening on how to spend the $ 3.79 million in CARES Act funds the county received last year.

The matter has been referred to the Quorum Court for approval. There will be no full committee meeting this month.

The county, which provides vaccines from Collier Drug Store, plans to initially deliver 1,000 doses per week over a three-month period. The county would try to create a “shop front” to deliver the footage, said Michael Waddle, district director for emergency management.

Collier Drug will coordinate registration and appointment times, Waddle said.

District Judge Barry Moehring said the district needs a more systematic approach to events as more vaccines become available. There the money might come in handy or it might not be used at all, he said. The county plans to use the county fairgrounds auditorium as a vaccination site, he said.

The county attended vaccination events held by the Northeast Benton County Fire Department in Garfield last Saturday, where more than 1,000 vaccines were administered, and an event in Decatur on Thursday, where 500 shots were fired, Möhring said. The county uses the two-shot method.

The federal law on aid, aid and economic security for coronavirus was passed on March 27th. According to a presentation Möhring made to the committee, states, local governments, tribes and territories had $ 150 billion available to respond to, prevent and prepare for Covid-19.

The application procedure under the CARES Act was opened in September. Benton County filed an application for $ 3.79 million in October and received the money in November. Then, according to the presentation, a special account was set up for the money.

Filing for a paycheck reimbursement was the quickest way to secure funding for the county. According to the presentation, this method has been approved by the State Ministry of Finance and Administration.

Washington County received the CARES Act cash of $ 4.5 million, primarily for wages and salaries for public safety and law enforcement workers. District Treasurer Bobby Hill told Justice of the Peace last month that the money is not restricted and can be used for any legal district purpose.

Reimbursable items, according to Moehring’s presentation, include medical care, payroll and public employee benefits, public health and infection control measures, public health compliance and economic recovery.

Benton County has met the grant requirements and the money can be considered unencumbered, Möhring said.

Justice of the Peace Joseph Bollinger also outlined at the meeting his plan to use $ 1 million of the county’s CARES Act funds to provide small business grants. The county would use a third party to manage the money, Bollinger said. Some justices of the peace said they wanted more information and it was decided to postpone the discussion to next month’s finance committee meeting.

Bollinger admitted the plan was still in its infancy and wanted feedback from other justices of the peace.

Bollinger asked for a subcommittee to be formed and to meet before the next meeting of the Finance Committee. This request was accepted.

Senate committee helps extra money for most cancers middle

A Florida Senate bill that would send additional state cigarette tax dollars to the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa was approved by the Senate Health Policy Committee today. Senate Bill (SB) 866 now goes to the Senate Finance and Tax Committee.

Senate officials estimate that SB 866 will raise funds raised to Moffitt from $ 15.6 million annually to $ 26.9 million (an increase of $ 11.4 million over the current year) from fiscal 2021-2022 through to the fiscal year 2023-2024. For fiscal 2024-2025, Moffitt’s funding is estimated at $ 38.4 million annually (an increase of $ 22.9 million from applicable law). If the bill fails, this money goes to the state general income fund.

According to the sponsor of the bill, Senator Ed Hooper (R-Pasco County), Moffitt will use part of the additional money to build a new “Comprehensive Cancer Research and Treatment Center” on 500 acres in Pasco County

The location is off Suncoast Parkway south of State Road 52.

Hooper told the committee that Moffit is the third largest cancer center in the country and is growing rapidly. It serves patients from across Florida, the US, and internationally.

He said, “Florida has the second highest cancer burden in the country and no place reacts like the Moffitt Cancer Center.”

SB 866 passed the vote of the Health Policy Committee unanimously.

senator Janet Cruz (D-Hillsborough County) said there are few fights she wants to participate in but this was one of them.

“We need to show more love to the Moffitt Cancer Center,” she told the committee.

An identical bill, House Bill 789, is in the Florida House, and both bills are expected to be considered during the Florida legislature beginning March 2nd.
