Governor Gretchen Whitmer has outlined her priorities for spending billions of dollars in federal Covid-19 relief aid.

She says the focus should be on initiatives to help small businesses, support job growth, and upgrade infrastructure. Other priorities include more public and mental health funding, expanded access to preschool and child care, and programs to address the loss of learning during the pandemic.

Whitmer says more than 18-billion-dollars is coming to the state. She and the Legislature will need to agree before much of the money is disbursed.
