Still Waiting for a Bill

February 12, 2009 - by Donny Shaw

But in the meantime, here’s a summary of the $311 billion in appropriations (.pdf) that will be included in the final version of the stimulus bill.

…$72. billion for rural broadband, $8.4 for mass transit, $9.3 billion for intercity rail investment, $19 billion for health IT, $53.6 billion for the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund, etc.

UPDATE: And here is the other half, a summary of the tax provisions in the final stimulus bill (.pdf), courtesy of the House Ways and Means.

Still no bill text available – well, publicly at least. Supposedly lobbyists have been given copies of it before even members of Congress.

UPDATE 2: More detailed information on the health care, broadband and energy provisions (.pdf) in the final stimulus from the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
