FEDERAL STIMULUS PACKAGE UPDATES
The League’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Web page can be accessed at www.tml.org, by clicking on “Federal Stimulus Information.” Since last week’s TML Legislative Update, various information on the TML Web page has been updated, including information relating to additional guidance released by various federal agencies on ARRA programs, including the following:
- The Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) will hold a public hearing on the Weatherization Assistance Program Plan at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2009, in Austin. A representative of TDHCA will describe the proposed use of the ARRA funds for the program, and the agency encourages local officials and citizens to participate in the hearing. For more details on the public hearing, please visit http://www.tdhca.state.tx.us/recovery/docs/09-ph-20090422-WAP.pdf.
- The Texas House Select Committee on Federal Economic Stabilization Funding released a “mid-session report” on much of the information it has obtained thus far. The document is available on the TML Web page under “Other Online Resources.”
League staff will continue to monitor the implementation of the ARRA.
