Virginia’s transportation funding plan was finally in place. ‘Then COVID-19 hit.’ | Govt-and-politics

Success came in 2013, when the assembly approved a $6 billion transportation funding package — sponsored by then-House Speaker Bill Howell, R-Stafford, and supported by then-Gov. Bob McDonnell — much larger in scope than they originally sought. The final package included long-sought regional funding for transportation priorities in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads.

Secretary of Finance Aubrey Layne, then a member of the Commonwealth Transportation Board, said Southard played an important role in getting the bill passed, as well as subsequent legislation that led to the creation of the Smart Scale program for ranking state transportation projects and committing money to get them done.

“He was a steadfast proponent of transportation funding,” Layne said.

Later, as transportation secretary under Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Layne said he initially clashed with Southard and his industry over reforms to the Public Private Transportation Act to protect the state’s interests in major highway deals with

Clark: Spending bills may offer vehicle for COVID-19 relief – News – MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA

U.S. Rep. Katherine Clark said Democrats will “continue to push” for the Senate to take up a version of the more than $3 trillion Heroes Act, but said the federal budget could be a vehicle for COVID-19 relief spending if that fails.

BOSTON — With states like Massachusetts still waiting for additional federal financial help, U.S Rep. Katherine Clark says Democrats could look to use the federal budget process to force more spending if they can’t reach a deal with Senate Republicans and the White House on a new stimulus bill.

Clark, a top-ranking Democrat in the House, said her party will “continue to push” for the Senate to take up a version of the more than $3 trillion Heroes Act, but said the federal budget could be a vehicle for COVID-19 relief spending if that fails.

With No Aid Coming Due to Covid-19 Fear, Family Transports Body on Bicycle in Karnataka

With no one reportedly coming to their aid due to the COVID-19 scare, a family was forced to transport a body on a bicycle amid heavy rains at a village in Belagavi district on Sunday.

As the video of the incident went viral, the Congress state unit flayed the government for its “apathy” to provide an ambulance to transport the body. Sharing the video on Twitter, Congress state chief D K Shivakumar wrote, “Relatives of a 70-year-old person who died in Kittur, Belagavi had to carry the body for cremation on a bicycle in heavy rains.” Questioning the government, he said “CM B S Yediyurappa, where is your government? Why was an ambulance not provided? ….. Govt lacks humanity & has been a total failure in handling the pandemic.”

Toyota Develops Vehicle To Transport Seriously Ill COVID-19 Patients

As of date, the new coronavirus pandemic has already affected several countries around the world, with 3.25-million confirmed cases and death toll hitting the 230,000 mark. In Japan, there are 14,305 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 455 deaths. Tokyo, the nation’s capital, tallies the most number of confirmed cases and casualties, with Osaka and Kanagawa following behind.
