The State of Texas stands to receive an extraordinary amount of money in the federal stimulus package. How big? Well for some programs, the infusion money will surpass the states annual share of appropriations. Some of the monies, about $270 million, are to be set for clean water infrastructure, which is more than twice what the Texas Water Development Board has received for the last three years combined. The package could also add about $2.4 billion for roads and bridges, $1.2 billion for lower performing schools. This would almost double what the state receives for these programs annually.
