North Carolina would be in line for $2.4 billion. Georgia could bring in $1.9 billion. Tennessee could collect $1.7 billion. Wisconsin could gain $1.3 billion. Missouri could receive $1.7 billion. Kansas could bring in $330 million. Texas stands to gain the most, with a potential of bringing in nearly $6 billion. The extra money would end after two years.
