Oberstar Calls Stimulus Package “Successful”
Congressman Jim Oberstar is praising the stimulus package passed by the Obama administration. Speaking in Pine City earlier this week, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee chair said the bill has been particularly important to transportation projects.
The bill included $789 billion of investments in infrastructure, energy independence, education, and health care.
Republican argued against the bill was excess spending.
Oberstar says Minnesota has reaped the benefits of the jobs created through the legislation.
