It has been more than a year since President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Recovery Act has provided funding for green jobs training programs, renewable energy projects, alternative fuel research and more. These projects have boosted the nation’s economy while putting us on a road to a clean energy future. On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden and Chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) Christina Romer presented the fourth quarterly Recovery Act update, which covers data through June 30, 2010.
