WASHINGTON, DC – Early this morning, the Senate passed the final part of a 6-bill “minibus” that will avert a government shutdown and fund key projects across Pennsylvania. This bill cleared the Senate by a 74-24 vote and will be sent to the president to be signed into law this afternoon.

“Any day that we get to bring millions of federal dollars back to Pennsylvania communities is a good day.” said Senator Fetterman. “I’m so proud to have advocated for and secured funding to expand affordable housing options for Pennsylvania families, enhance health care services throughout the commonwealth, and support programs that lift workers up into better-paying jobs. This is what it’s all about: delivering direct investments to benefit Pennsylvania families across the commonwealth.”

Senator Fetterman, in partnership with Senator Casey and his House colleagues, successfully secured over $117 million in funding for Congressionally Directed Spending to fund 99 projects spanning 41 counties across Pennsylvania. Of these 99 projects, Fetterman personally secured $30,407,000 in funding for a third of them, spanning 21 counties. Examples of projects supported by Fetterman include:

Building Affordable Housing in Pennsylvania


Upgrading Local Infrastructure


Supporting First Responders & Public Services


Expanding Access to Healthcare
