LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Arkansas CARES Act Steering Committee met to discuss the future of the federal COVID-19 aid.
Today, the committee approved a proposal to upgrade the state’s cyber security and data center.
The proposal requests $33.5 million of CARES Act funding to buy equipment, software, and services to make upgrades.
A letter will be sent to the Gov. Asa Hutchinson for approval to then go through the legislative process.
As for the $2.5 million left to be distributed, the committee will meet again in June to discuss how that money will be spent.
