Palin Rejects 30% of Stimulus Funds

Thursday, 19 Mar 2009 08:19 PM

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will accept just 69 percent of the estimated $930 million in federal stimulus funds that could flow to the state.

Palin's original announcement Thursday that she was accepting just over half the stimulus package funds did not include $128 million in Medicaid stimulus money she is accepting.

The former vice presidential candidate says she will accept only money without strings that will bind the state later. It's up to the Legislature to weigh in on the rest of the package.

Some GOP governors, including Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, also have rejected some stimulus money. Others, including Arnold Schwarzenegger of California and Charlie Crist of Florida, have welcomed it.
