Mass.Could See $11 Billion From Stimulus Bill

By Paul Tuthill


Springfield, MA – The economic stimulus bill passed by the US House of Representatives this week would mean $11 billion for Massachusetts over the next two years . That is according to an analysis by an advocacy group, the Center for American Progress. The estimate includes aid that would flow to the state government for medicaid and other programs. It also factors in such things as tax cuts and funding for food stamps and unemployment benefits that would go directly to state residents.
