The revenue bill, has split the house in the middle, as lawmakers fight for a formula that would benefit their counties. On one hand, Senators from populous counties pushed for the approval of The Bill proposed by the House Budget and Finance Committee which would have seen their counties gain billions of money.
However, Senators from marginalised counties wanted a formula that would ensure no county losses funds. They called this a win-win formula. They were supported by six Senators, whose counties were gaining money in the new formula but chose to pursue a path that would leave the country united.
