2009 Stimulus Bill: Day One

This article was written by in Economy. 1 comment.

Just a quick update this morning to point out something I think has been under-reported:

President Barack Obama should be signing into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act today, which means that States (and Commonwealths) requested federal stimulus money have forty-five days to start spending some of that money on public works and improvements.

No matter where in America you live, your Governor’s 45 days starts now, or decisions will end up being made by the State Legislature.

Send a politician millions and tell him/her to hurry up and spend it? Don’t get trampled by the lobbyists.
