Economic Stimulus Legislation Approved by U.S. Senate and Sent to President Obama

Update: This bill was signed into law on Tuesday, February 17.

Today, the U.S. Senate approved the compromise version of economic stimulus legislation (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, H.R. 1). This version was created by a House-Senate conference committee that met earlier this week to resolve differences between the different versions of the bill that had been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.

As this legislation has already been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives it will now be sent to President Obama, who is expected to sign it by Monday, February 16.

As described previously, this legislation contains investments and tax credits to support clean energy, energy efficiency, and green jobs.  The following links provide access to the complete bill text and related documents:
