LAO Details COVID-19 State Funding Actions

On Monday, the Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) issued a post summarizing recent legislative and administrative action to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The post details the Legislature’s emergency appropriation of up to $1 billion, $100 million for school facilities, and additional transfers to the Disaster Response-Emergency Operations Account (DREOA).

The LAO explores state expenditures to date, the potential for federal reimbursement of incurred costs, and other costs not captured by the LAO post. The full LAO post is available here.
