Word has been trickling in about what the Stimulus Package will mean for my agency. My eyes sort of bugged out when I heard that we could be seeing a doubling in our budget this year! Holy crap! I guess because we control a lot of levees and dams, safety and security are major issues which have been under-funded over the past 8 years. Basically they're telling us to be ready to spend a lot of money very quickly to get the workforce out there. At least we'll be improving our infrastructure which has been neglected for years due to ever-tightening budgets.
