On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The "stimulus bill" represents the latest and largest effort by the federal government to boost the deteriorating economy. The ARRA's purpose is to preserve and create jobs and promote economic recovery by providing needed investments in transportation, environmental protection, and other infrastructure projects that will provide long-term economic benefits.
