Spending the Stimulus: Are Taxpayers Getting Their Money's Worth?

October 8, 10-11AM PDT

Event Description

State and local governments must make their first report of how they are spending federal stimulus dollars by October 10. The reports will provide the most comprehensive look yet at how much money has been spent, what types of projects the money is funding and how many jobs have been created or saved as a result. Join GOVERNING and state and local experts as they probe these questions and more:

  • What will the numbers say about the prospects for economic recovery?
  • Will wounded state budgets heal before the stimulus money dries up?
  • Has the stimulus spending transformed government in any lasting ways?
