American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (S.1)
by Harry Reid
One of the first dozen or so "place holder" proposed bill designation assignments afforded to the Majority Leader in each chamber of Congress per session in case the need arises to consolidate or transfer legislative language to it at some point.
In this case, ARRA was hosted under H.R. 1 (plus S. 336 & S. 350) until it passed into law, so the below is pretty much moot if not pointless to cite.
