Rehberg’s New “Stimulus Watch” Will At Least Allow Him to Track the Beneficial Projects He Opposed

Recently, Representative Denny Rehberg proudly announced that he was creating a "Stimulus Watch" on his web site to track how economic recovery package funding is being spent in Montana.

 

"It's a good thing Representative Rehberg created his much-touted Stimulus Watch, because even though Rehberg voted twice against the bill that is creating or saving jobs in Montana and is providing hard-working Montanans the largest tax cut in American history, Rehberg can at least watch all the benefits the bill contains for Big Sky Country," said Andy Stone, Western Regional Press Secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

 

 

Background

 

  • Earlier this year, Representative Denny Rehberg voted no on the Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act (H.R. 1) which provides a tax cut for more than 95 percent of working families in America.

 

  • Representative Rehberg proudly touted his new "Stimulus Watch" web site.

 

  • According to news reports, already the economic recovery package is making funding available for such projects as:
    • Upgrading the ventilation technology and refurbishing the 100-year old Main Hall on the campus of the University of Montana Western;
    • Employing up to 200 Billings youngsters as part of the area's summer youth employment program;
    • Remodeling part of the Billings courthouse;
    • Repairing the town of Brockton's sewage lagoon; and
    • Upkeep and repainting of the 100,000-gallon water tank for the town of Flaxville.
