Policy Position Paper

This legislation, popularly referred to as the stimulus or recovery act, was proposed by the Obama administration to overcome the economic recession and reinstate the American economy. The policy addresses several aspects of the economy, including housing, transportation, education, social security etc. This paper focuses on the energy component of the legislation and endeavors to critique the implementation of policy actions by states and localities where the grant money was received.
