Stimulated on the Island

Well, it turns out there was more than just free money being handed out on the stimulus package, at least here in Rhode Island:

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is already working in Rhode Island by creating jobs, making transportation infrastructure improvements, and investing in environmental restoration and public safety projects. To date, Rhode Island has received $557 million in award notifications. The Rhode Island Department of Transportation estimates that our state's share of the ARRA investments in infrastructure will create 1,600 jobs directly and another 3,400 jobs indirectly.
