Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009

Obama is coming through this time for the environment!

(ATLANTA – May 19, 2009) On Wednesday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will announce $600,000 in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) to the city of Aiken, S.C., to help create green jobs by revitalizing former industrial and commercial sites, turning them from problem properties to productive community use. This is the first investment of EPA Recovery Act funds in Aiken.

President Obama signed the ARRA on Feb. 17, 2009, and has directed that the Recovery Act be implemented with unprecedented transparency and accountability. To that end, the American people can see how every dollar is being invested at

I will be sure to check the website often to see how this plays out. I'm excited that the first investment is coming to the Carolinas!
