MADISON (WKOW)--The federal stimulus package created or saved 44,000 jobs in Wisconsin over the past nine months.
That, according to the White House Council of Economic Advisors, in a report on spending from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The report says Wisconsin oversaw nearly $982 million in ARRA money since the program began.
The Wisconsin Office of Recovery and Reinvestment filed a comprehensive report on Friday with the federal government detailing stimulus money spent through the state of Wisconsin and what effect these dollars are having in Wisconsin communities.
According to that report, over the last three months, ARRA funding is responsible for saving or creating 8,964 full-time jobs, including 6,500 essential public service jobs such as teachers, police officers and firefighters.
