Yarmuth Holds Town Hall On Stimulus

Congressman John Yarmuth will travel back to Washington on Monday after spending a week in his district.

Yarmuth made several appearances touting the recently passed stimulus package, which he says will bring billions of dollars to Kentucky.

On Saturday, the congressmen held town hall to discuss the package. He says the audience was wary, but optimistic.

“There were many questions about the long-term implications of it in terms of national debt, which we’re all concerned about. But by and large, I think the people who were there were more interested in getting information than with actually voicing an opinion,” he says.

Yarmuth says the stimulus will bring about 7 billion dollars to Kentucky in the form of tax cuts and funding for education, transportation and other projects and programs.
