Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed legislation creating a $173 million rainy-day fund to respond to the coronavirus outbreak on March 28.

On March 30, Hutchinson announced that legislative leaders approved his administration's request to tap $45 million from the fund created by the General Assembly.

Larry Walther, secretary of the state Department of Finance and Administration, said $30 million of the request will be used to purchase personal protective equipment for the state’s hospitals, first responders, community health clinics and others whose work is critical to the response to the ongoing crisis.

An additional $13.5 million will be used to purchase more ventilators and associated parts and equipment as well as any shipping or freight charges required to equip the state’s hospitals with this life-saving equipment.
