McConnell Downplays Need for Aid in Kentucky
By The Associated Press
LEXINGTON - U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has downplayed a new infusion of federal relief for his home state’s government. 

He questioned the need Monday as the economy rebounds from COVID-19. 

During a Kentucky event, McConnell touted pandemic aid passed last year with bipartisan support. He was dismissive of the latest round of relief that passed over GOP opposition. 

State government in Kentucky is expected to receive more than $2.4 billion from the newest aid package. Governor Andy Beshear says the aid will create jobs and upgrade infrastructure.
