More money is expected to go toward populous urban counties with certain kinds of municipal structures and with greater poverty, congressional aides and municipal lobbyists say. That has stirred criticisms from Republicans who say the legislation favors big, Democratic-leaning cities. But, even among more rural counties that don't see the largest benefits under the bill's funding formula — and that trend Republican — some places will benefit more than others, preliminary stimulus estimates show.
