The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 is an economic stimulus package enacted by congress in February 2009. Section 1605 of this act sets forth the clear expectation that all iron, steel, and manufactured goods used in an ARRA-funded project must be produced in the United States.  To be considered of domestic origin, a good must be manufactured or qualify as substantially transformed in the United States.

The basic intent of the ARRA includes the following: 1) to preserve and create jobs and promote economic recovery, 2) to assist those most impacted by the recession, 3) to provide investments needed to increase economic efficiency by spurring technological advances in science and health, 4) to invest in transportation, environmental protection, and other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits, and 5) to stabilize state and local government budgets, in order to minimize and avoid reductions in essential services and counterproductive state and local tax increases.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 mandated the creation of a website to foster greater accountability and transparency in the use of funds made available as part of this act.  The website went live on February 17, 2009.  For more information visit the website at www.recovery.gov.
