Congress reaches stimulus accord

Washington Post, February 12, 2009

Congressional leaders have agreed on the details of a nearly $790 billion stimulus package, an attempt by the federal government to jolt the economy, create millions of jobs and ease the financial woes facing individuals, businesses, and states. The bill is made up of four broad categories: tax breaks for individuals and businesses, investments in healthcare and alternative energy, funding for infrastructure projects, and aid to state and local governments that includes expanded benefits for individuals who are unemployed and lack health insurance.
