The folks in DC have been busy today. I've received several documents related to the stimulus bill that's making its way through Congress, AKA the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, AKA S.1 and H.R.1. The House version passed on Wednesday.
Here's a quick list of documents and links on the newly-released text of S.1:
- Text of the Senate version
- Summary of the Senate version (only 176 pages!)
- Analysis of Workforce Investment Act and Employment Services spending in the Senate bill, courtesy of The Workforce Alliance
- Analysis of training and employment services spending in the Senate bill, courtesy of the California Workforce Association
For comparison, here's info on H.R.1, the House version:
- Text of the House version
- Analysis of how the money is allocated in the House version, state by state
- Summary of workforce provisions in the House bill, again from TWA
In addition, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has issued detailed analysis of key provisions in the stimulus bills affecting low- and moderate-income people, including food stamps, child tax credit, education and unemployment.
