(AP) The Michigan Legislature on Wednesday unanimously approved spending $880 million in federal relief aid in response to the coronavirus pandemic, setting aside funding for frontline workers, municipalities and child care providers.

 

Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whose administration was involved in negotiations, will sign it.

 

The legislation includes $220 million to give pay raises to certain health workers ($2 an hour) and first responders (up to $1,000), $200 million to reimburse local governments for virus-related spending and $125 million to reduce child care costs.
