Brown’s economic recovery Web page will be updated regularly to reflect funding information as it becomes available.

Following the passage of the recovery package, Brown announced this statement:

“This bill accomplishes what we set out to do—rebuild our economy and put Americans back to work,” said Brown. “This isn’t a perfect bill but it is a significant jumpstart that our economy needs. It includes investments in Ohio’s infrastructure which will provide immediate job creation and promote long-term economic development. It also provides relief to middle class families by lowering taxes and making college more affordable. This bill is the first of many steps we will take to rebuild our economy and address the housing crisis.”
