Stimulus Spending - Best and Worst

Ian Scott on Monday, August 10, 2009 at 7:10:17 pm

Funding for transportation projects through the Economic Stimulus Package came with the expectation that it would get spent, quickly.  Now House Transportation Committee Chairman James Oberstar wants you to know which states are living up to the quick spending expectations and which are not.

According to Oberstar Wyoming is the best of the 50 States, having already spent or committed 76% of allocated stimulus funds.  They are followed by New Hampshire and Oklahoma at 64% and 53 % respectively.  Worst in the nation are Florida, Hawaii and South Carolina which have spent or committed less than 3% of allocated stimulus funds.
