Miami Herald, December 17, 2008
An economic stimulus package supported by President-elect Barack Obama could bring up to $1.8 billion to Florida in additional money for healthcare for the poor and children, according to a study released by Families USA. The study estimated that the additional money could help create 34,000 jobs statewide. The estimates were based on proposals from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the National Governors Association.
