Senator Wilson holds more town hall meetings on federal stimulus dollars

Miami – Due to the overwhelming outcry from the community State Senator Frederica Wilson. (D-Miami Gardens) will hold three additional Town Hall Meetings on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to show how Florida businesses, employers and citizens can access Federal Stimulus dollars.  Representatives confirmed to make presentations include the offices of Senators Bill Nelson and Mel Martinez, Governor Crist, Mayor Alvarez, and the Florida Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental Relations. 


 “People are struggling,” said Senator Wilson, “and they have a right to know what monies we are receiving and how it will be used in our communities.”


With approximately 83,000 workers expected to run out of benefits between March and July and 900,000 unemployed in the state, speakers will explain how Florida can extend benefits for unemployed workers in the private sector for an additional 20 weeks. They will also discuss  small business grants, Medicaid, replacing stimulus dollars and the weatherization program.
