Facing the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, Congress passed and the President signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, legislation that will save and create jobs, help struggling families, and establish sustainable growth for our economy. A White House report estimates that, as a result of this bill, 100,000 new jobs will be created in New Jersey, including 8,000 in our 12 th Congressional District.
The bill makes important investments in various fields, including science research, transportation infrastructure improvement, education, energy efficiency, and health care -- all of which are highlighted in greater detail in the sections below.
This website section provides information on how you, New Jersey families, businesses, and communities will benefit from this economic recovery bill. As the bill is implemented, I am working to ensure that New Jersey gets its fair share and that you have the opportunity and information to take advantage of all of its benefits.
