3. I was listening to Maxine Waters' opening statement at a Rules Committee hearing on the extension

that was held this past Thursday I believe, and one of the things she brought up was that many of the states were literally "starting from scratch" trying to develop some type of system to handle the applications and distribute the money. So I think outside of any red states doing their typical stall jobs, I think others were just overwhelmed. And for example, if a state plans to contract that out (which I expect they all do if they don't already have a similar system that can be leveraged to take on that mandate), since the ARP was signed at the end of April, they had to fine-tooth comb it, and then come up with all the requirements for a database, and then put that out for bid, etc., and that can take time - normally more than 3 months. And that's not counting doing the testing on it before going live.

It's just so unfortunate that we have had to go through all this the past year and a half because of the insanity of the GOP.

Here is that hearing (I had posted in another thread, the hearing itself starts at about the 18:00 min mark, ~8:07 am on the stream's still image clock) -
