ARPA Dollars, Where Art Thou?


Top 10 state? Not when it comes to spending the once-in-a-lifetime federal infusion of $1.87 billion in taxpayers’ capital from American Rescue Plan Act. One national ranking puts Oklahoma’s allocation at 40th. Why the holdup? For this week’s Observercast – ARPA Dollars, Where Art Thou? – state Rep. Meloyde Blancett, who serves on the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Pandemic Relief Funding, joins us to discuss the windfall’s potential to change Oklahoma’s trajectory for generations to come.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
