The Thicket

I received the following comment from a legislative staffer who wishes to remain anonymous:

"Please note that subsection (c) of the Clyburn amendment appears to LIMIT the ability of the legislature in distributing "Clyburn" resulting monies. Perhaps I'm misreading the language, but it states the funding to the state will be for distribution to "local governments, councils of government, public entities, and public-private entities" within the state..." Do you think that excludes "state government"?"

This is an interesting new question. We don't know the answer to this one either. As soon as we get guidance from the feds, we'll let people know. My best guess is that it was not the intent of Congress to exclude use of funds at the state level, and that this is just another case of poor drafting. But don't try to take my guess to the bank.
