stimulus inbound

I somehow missed the specifics on this. But according to the Center for American Progress the amount of money that is allocated to Pennsylvania in the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act is slated to be over $22Billion. If you click on their map you get this slightly more specific breakout:
"Total Allocated to the state: $22.07 billion

11.28% is set aside to balance the state budget. The rest is marked for specific programs and tax cuts. "

The North Shore is pretty much nowhere, except on Sunday's when it's parking lots make it the 5th largest city in PA.

After reviewing the part of the House stimulus bill that is actually being spent on transportation infrastructure (a measly $10 billion) I would say that the odds are good that the NSC receives the $120 million it needs in order to get "bailed out."

And probably the additional extra $30 million it will need when the trillions of the surplus actually do start inflation.
