The Assembly approved the measure 95-0 Tuesday.

The money would only be available to the 56 most rural counties in the state. Counties or groups of counties could come together to apply for grants for revolving loans under the programs.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation would be in charge of distributing the money. The proposal calls for it to give priority to underserved communities in rural Wisconsin.

It now heads to the Senate.
