6. Guess Illinois won't have to worry about this then:
From the Stimulus Bill, page 14:



3 None of the funds provided by this Act may be made

4 available to the State of Illinois, or any agency of the

5 State, unless (1) the use of such funds by the State is

6 approved in legislation enacted by the State after the date

7 of the enactment of this Act, or (2) Rod R. Blagojevich

8 no longer holds the office of Governor of the State of Illi-

9 nois. The preceding sentence shall not apply to any funds

10 provided directly to a unit of local government (1) by a

11 Federal department or agency, or (2) by an established

12 formula from the State.

Is it wrong that I found this small section utterly hilarious? :rofl:
