Kentucky will receive about $3 billion for health care, education and road construction over the next two years, according to a news release from Gov. Steve Beshear.

The $787 billion federal stimulus bill, called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, will direct $924 million to education in the state, $421 million for road and bridge construction and about $990 million for Medicaid.

The state should receive about $120 million to address revenue shortfalls expected in the next two fiscal years.
