Thoughts on the stimulus package?

As most of you know, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the $819 billion economic stimulus package last night. The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate, where passage is expected sometime next week.

However, because the two bills will be somewhat different, they will need to be ironed out in a conference committee into a version that will then need passage again from the Senate and the House before making their way to President Barack Obama's desk.

What are your thoughts on the bill and its impact on the AEC industry? Does the stimulus package go far enough in addressing America's infrastructure needs?

Many critics say no, but now's your chance to weigh in. E-mail me at and we'll post your comments on the blog and in the March issue of the PSMJ newsletter.

We look forward to hearing from you!
