Schweitzer Administration Introduces Stimulus Plan

March 11, 2009View for printing

Lawmakers got their first look Wednesday at the governor's plan for Montana's federal stimulus money and were told they will have discretion with more than a third of it.

Gov. Brian Schweitzer's budget director pitched the administration's plan for $800 million in federal money being funneled through the state and the roughly $300 million of it the state can play with.

Ewer said the larger portion is earmarked for 55 specific uses, the biggest part of that going to transportation projects like road construction.
