Abstract:

On February 17, the Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and appropriated 7.4 billion to the Department of Defense for military construction, facility repair, energy efficiency investments, nearterm energy research, and assistance to certain Department of Defense personnel, past and present, who have experienced financial losses through the downturn in the U.S. housing market. The purpose of these investments is to stimulate the U.S. economy while supporting our service members and their families. U.S. jobs are created and preserved when funds are spent on U.S. military installations to build new facilities, repair aging facilities, or bring buildings up to date with the most modern energy efficiency standards. Technical jobs are created through targeted research on energy projects that aid the Department in reducing its long-term energy costs and improving current energy efficiency in the near-term.
