Under the Dome

Repackaging the stimulus package

The stimulus package is being repackaged.

The money coming to North Carolina from the federal stimulus package passed by Congress is being rebranded.

At the Monday morning Cabinet meeting, Gov. Beverly Perdue said the North Carolina effort has been renamed to the more positive sounding "economic recovery" program, Rob Christensen reports.

Dempsey Benton took some kidding at the Cabinet meeting for being the state's new "stimulus czar." But maybe he now should be called the "economic recovery czar."

Dome will continue to refer to it as the "stimulus package" for the same reason we call the governor "Beverly" instead of "Bev."

Re: Repackaging the stimulus package

where's GOLDENLeaf? supposedly setup to help economic conditions, one must assume that if its viable then GOLDNENLeaf should process eco-incentives - and if it isn't - why not get rid of GOLDENLeaf? Indeed, why not?

this story seems meaningless,
but it begs the question: did previous governors get goofy cartoon drawings?
