The Recovery Act is working. We see it working through the investments that the Department of the Interior is making through the Recovery Act. Congress entrusted the Department of Interior with the responsibility of investing $3 billion to create jobs, restoring America's national parks and treasured landscapes, building clean drinking water infrastructure for rural communities, fixing and upgrading aging schools in Indian country, and taking on other critically important projects for the nation. We are making these investments swiftly on the 18 month timeline established by congress. We are also making these investments responsibly. We want to make sure that we get it right, as you would want us to do. We want to insure that tax payer dollars are not going to waste.
