Minn. 12,000 jobs richer due to stimulus
ST. PAUL -- The federal stimulus has provided paychecks this year for nearly 12,000 jobs in Minnesota schools, prisons, state psychiatric institutions and construction on roads and sewer and water systems.
State finance officials reported Monday that the stimulus created or saved 11,800 jobs through the end of September. The state has spent $1.6 billion, or about a third of the $4.7 billion it stands to get from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
