Indiana stimulus fund distributions taking shape

INDIANA’S SHARE OF THE FEDERAL STIMULUS MONEY IS FOUR-POINT-THREE-BILLION
DOLLARS. CITIES AND COUNTIES HAVE REQUESTED NEARLY SIX TIMES THAT. THE STATE
HAD HIRED BALL STATE TO SURVEY CITIES AND COUNTIES ABOUT THEIR NEEDS FROM
VARIOUS WEATHER DISASTERS LAST YEAR, WHICH AFFECTED ALL BUT 10 COUNTIES.
WITH THAT PROCESS IN PLACE, THE STATE EXTENDED IT TO ASK FOR SUGGESTIONS FOR
LOCAL STIMULUS PROJECTS. THE RESULT: A DELUGE OF NINE-THOUSAND PROGRAMS
TOTALING 25 BILLION.
