Tracking Pa. pandemic spending

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a lot money has come into, and passed out of, the Pennsylvania Treasury.

Some of that money was allocated by the state legislature and the Wolf administration and some funding came from the federal government as part of two pandemic relief actions.

Pandemic-related spending and requests for money have happened at a fast pace. Critics say that with an increase in spending and urgency that transparency and oversight of the process has suffered.
