ABSTRACT
The article examines the use of funds made available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in California, by the Government Accountability Office. It was found that the state faces severe budgetary pressures despite the influx of Recovery Act funds. The funds help to preserve essential services and repair infrastructure but have not helped stabilize the state's base budgets. The Recovery Task Force is established by the governor to ensure funds are spent efficiently.
