Handy-dandy chart

Here’s something to check out before you talk to your Congressional delegation about the economic stimulus package. AGC has put together a chart that gives a state-by-state overview of 1.) the decrease in construction employment from peak (only Oklahoma has had no decrease in the recent fallout), and 2.) what each state would realize for each $1 billion in stimulus funding. It’s a fascinating read. http://www.agc.org/cs/industry_topics/construction_economics/state_by_state_stimulus_impacts
