The Stimulus Plan: A Detailed List of Spending

The Stimulus Plan: A Detailed List of Spending

by Michael Grabell and Christopher Weaver, ProPublica - February 13, 2009 10:24 am EST

This list reflects the final stimulus bill signed by the president in February.

In February, the House approved the economic stimulus plan with a vote of 246 to 183, followed by the Senate with a vote of 60 to 38. Want to know what's in it? You could read the 1,071-page gorilla. Or you could let us do the work for you. We’ve dissected the beast in two charts – one for spending below, and one for taxes.

The appropriations section of the bill details spending in excess of $311 billion for programs ranging from Pell grants for college students to clean water in central Utah to nearly $100 billion in new transportation and infrastructure projects.

Here’s our earlier chart comparing the differences between the House, Senate, and conference versions of the bills.

This chart and other stories are part of Eye on the Stimulus, our blog dedicated to tracking the stimulus. Also, check out our ultimate bailout guide. We're tracking every taxpayer dollar, every recipient and every program in the current financial crisis. All searchable – and translated into English.
