Obama Signs Stimulus

President Obama has signed the $780+ billion economic stimulus package (H.R. 1) into law.  The bill is officially titled the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Last week, the bill was passed in the House by a vote of 246 to 183 and the Senate by a vote of 60 to 38.

Recovery.gov, a website which will be the “main vehicle to provide each and every citizen with the ability to monitor the progress of the recovery” according to a mission statement, is now online for you to check out.
