Back from the Brink: The Recovery Act One Year Later

For the first time in more than two and a half years, Pennsylvania saw its unemployment rate drop in November. Several months of jobs data confirm that we are beginning to see the signs of an economic recovery taking shape in the Commonwealth after the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.

Join the Keystone Research Center, the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center and our partners as we examine the role that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) has played in slowing down the job losses in Pennsylvania and setting us on a course toward economic recovery. Register today.
