The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("ARRA"), the "Go Oregon" state stimulus plan (SB 338), and several other stimulus-related programs throughout the region have been enacted and affect the Pacific Northwest. The ARRA and other stimulus laws are complex, with far-reaching impact and consequences.
