WAPT – Barbour urges counties to spend stimulus money or the State will collect it

Gov. Haley Barbour has sent a letter to all county agencies saying if they haven’t used the bond money provided through President Barack Obama’s stimulus package, he’ll claim it for the state’s use in April.
Barbour claimed that the economy is too tight to let that money go to waste before the end of the year deadline.
WAPT News did some digging to see how much recovery act money is allotted for the state and who’s getting it.
