WATCH Webisode with the Empire Center’s Director of Research
About this Webinar:
The American Rescue Plan provided millions of dollars – your tax dollars – to states, municipalities, and school districts all across the country. More than $24 billion is flowing to New York State and its local governments.
This funding can be used for strategic investments or it can be used for wasteful, unsustainable spending.
The BNP hosted Peter Warren, the Empire Center’s Director of Research, for a conversation focused on how the ARP funding should be used to invest in our communities and build a stronger economy moving out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this webinar, we discussed:
- The historical context of this windfall
- Effective vs. wasteful approaches
- Potential opportunities for the private sector
