Principles for State Implementation of the Recovery Plan
March 5, 2009
With billions of dollars in federal Recovery Act spending coming to Ohio, Policy Matters Ohio and Community Research Partners urged state policymakers to invest in programs that will give struggling low- income families and unemployed workers new opportunities to succeed economically. The groups asked Governor Strickland and Ohio legislators to ensure that stimulus money helps stabilize the economy and benefits those hurt most by the recession. Spending should be done openly, efficiently and with accountability.
