President Obama signed HR 1005 this morning!

The Senate approved HR 1005 – the Omnibus Appropriations Act, 2009 which included EETT at $269 million. The bill was signed by the President this morning.
Many different iterations for the timing and process of the EETT Stimulus Funding have been reported in the last few weeks. SETDA believes (thanks to Steve Sanders from WI) that we have the latest information available in terms of when this funding will be made available to states. The “fall 2009” that many of you have inquired about seems to have been replaced with 50% in June/July and 50% in September/Oct. For more detailed information please see the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Timing Spreadsheet
