White House on $60 Billion of School Funds that Remain Unspent: We Still Need More

‘The funding that was in the $900 billion package ... will be spent in the next couple of weeks’

EXCERPT:

PSAKI: “Sure. Well, my understanding from talking to our economic team is that the funding -- that was in the $900 billion package -- I think if that’s what you’re referring to -- will be spent in the next couple of weeks. And so what we’re trying to look ahead to is what are the needs as we're looking to public schools across the country, that many of them need funding, many of them need PPE, many of them need testing, many of them need, you know, better ventilation in their schools to ensure we have adequate funding needed to open the majority of schools within a hundred days which remains the president’s goal.”
