Michael Ivanovich is helping engineers find U.S. stimulus dollars.

Oak Brook, IL– The chief editor of Consulting-Specifying Engineer , a sister publication to Control Engineering , is digging deeper into the stimulus bill to determine what impact it may have for engineers. Consulting-Specifying Engineer Chief Editor Michael Ivanovich continues examining the newly passed $789 billion stimulus bill to see what’s in it for engineers.
The April 3 post talks about portions of the stimulus bill relevant to the engineering community and provides related stimulus bill hyperlinks to supplemental energineering information .
Ivanovich found the bill at www.senate.gov
The purpose of the bill is summarized as: A bill to create jobs, restore economic growth, and strengthen America's middle class through measures that modernize the nation's infrastructure, enhance America's energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need, and for other purposes.“Engineers who are involved with energy efficiency, green buildings, renewable energy, Smart Grid, and utility-grid updates, etc. stand to see a massive influx of stimulus spending,” says Ivanovich. “Manufacturers who make products for energy efficiency should see an increase in orders as the dollars trick down into projects.”
