U.S. Senate Approves Conference Committee Version of Economic Stimulus Legislation

Today, the U.S. Senate approved the compromise version of economic stimulus legislation (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, H.R. 1). This version was created by a House-Senate conference committee that met earlier this week to resolve differences between the different versions of the bill that had been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. 

As this legislation has already been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives it will now be sent to President Obama, who is expected to sign it by Monday, February 16.

As described in this post on Green Collar Blog, this legislation contains investments and tax credits to support clean energy, energy efficiency, and green jobs.  The following links provide access to the complete bill text and related documents:
