Biden, Kaine Talk Stimulus
Vice President Joe Biden (D) spoke to several governors, including Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D), earlier today about implementating the federal economic stimulus package.
Governors on the conference call included those from Arkansas, Nebraska, Utah, Oregon, North Carolina and Virginia. Eight mayors, but none from Virginia, were on a second call.
Virginia is expected to receive about $5 billion from the federal package. Legislators used about $1.5 billion to help cover a $3.7 billion shortfall in the two-year, $77 billion budget.
