Gov. Patrick Warns Stimulus Money Not A Panacea

Governor Deval Patrick says Massachusetts will receive between $6 billion and $9 billion in economic stimulus money from the federal government.

Most of the money will go to specific programs, the Governor said Wednesday, and state officials won't likely have any say in how it's spent. But some — about one billion dollars — is for infrastructure projects.

WBUR's Fred Thys has the story.
