When Congresswoman Lauren Underwood was a freshman, she was unable to protect McHenry County when the Covid-19 moey was passed out.
Or she was unaware of the population threshold that prevented subsidy money’s coming directly to 300,000+ person McHenry County.
Our county was too small, so, of the major counties in her district, it was the only one left out.
This year Underwood is a member of the House Appropriations Committee and should have the influence to make certain that Covid money comes directly to McHenry County, instead of sending it to the State like last time.
Time will tell.
