The Stimulus Deal

The Stimulus Deal: The Latest Tally

by Michael Grabell, ProPublica - February 12, 2009 5:20 pm EST

Well, we wanted to tell you what’s in the final, $789 billion stimulus package, but guess what? The bill still hadn't been released as of late Thursday. So the best we can do is this partial account, which is based on summaries (PDF) released (PDF) so far. Where an item is blank, it means we don't yet have the figure. For those of you following education spending, note that while school construction has been cut out, about $41 billion of the amount for state fiscal relief is for schools. States will have the option to use that money for school repairs.

The chart and other stories are part of ShovelWatch, our ongoing project with WNYC Radio of New York to track the stimulus package.
