States Put Bulk of Discretionary Stimulus Spending into Public Safety Projects

Al Gordon of NSI reports: “While the bulk of stimulus funding earmarked for state recovery efforts comes with conditions, a small amount comes with the freedom for officials to do with what they please.  According to a recent report published by the Council of State Governments, states are spending $8.8 billion in discretionary funding in the State Fiscal Stabilization funds on various efforts. The largest chunk – more than 28 percent – went to Public Safety.”
