Mississippi to receive more ARRA cash

WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced nearly $38 million in funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Mississippi is to receive $469,626.

States will use the funds to plan for energy supply disruption risks and vulnerabilities to lessen the devastating impact that such incidents can have on the economy and the health and safety of the public.

Each state will be required to track energy emergencies to assess the restoration and recovery times of any supply disruptions, train appropriate personnel on energy infrastructure and supply systems and conduct and participate in state and regional energy emergency exercises to evaluate the effectiveness of their energy assurance plans.
