States are set to receive funds over the next several years under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. With money starting to reach stimulus projects, Stateline.org asked state legislators meeting for the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Legislative Summit in Philadelphia what it would take for them to push for another stimulus program for their state.
Q: What development in your state would lead you to push for a second stimulus package?
A: I think the states could always use more money but considering our children and grandchildren will pay for this, I’m up in the air about a second stimulus. If it’s done the same way, it has to trickle down more to states.
