ABSTRACT
The article discusses the $40 billion in the economic stimulus bill that directly affects the technology industry. The bill survived the second round of cutting and pasting that took place in the U.S. Senate in February 2009. The bill, which should come in at about $820 billion, is scheduled for a full Senate vote. If it passes, as is expected, a committee made up of House and Senate members will try to resolve changes in the bill before it is sent to the president for his signature. It is noted that the bill has a lot in it for the technology industry.
