Two Community projects championed by Rep. Peter Welch and Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders, will get a funding boost. The projects address access to mental health care, affordable housing, and healthy and affordable foods. In the Northeast Kingdom, a $750,000 appropriation will modernize the energy efficiency of the Alexander Twilight Theater, at NVU-Lyndon. In Newport, $500,000 will go toward upgrades to the Gardner Park grandstand and ball field. The bill also includes funding for the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, advances vital reforms included in the Electoral Count Act to ensure the integrity of future presidential elections, and reaffirms the United States’ support for the Ukrainian people as they defend their homeland against Russian aggression.
