ABSTRACT
On February 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It called for the creation of new jobs and the support of jobs at-risk, stimulation of the economy using investment to spur long-term growth, and an unprecedented level of accountability and transparency in government spending. Taylor County, Texas, received $48 million over 16 months for 78 projects. This paper will model the impact of the stimulus package on Taylor County, Texas, and compare this model with an alternate tax relief model. This paper is intended to improve the economic choices made by Taylor County and the city of Abilene.
