On Friday, the both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate voted 246-183 and 60-38 respectively to pass the final version of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. President Obama has now signed the bill into law. The congressional vote was along party lines as no Republican House members voted for the measure and seven Democrats also voted no. As RenewableEnergyWorld.com has been reporting for the last two weeks, the bill includes a host of provisions that will greatly benefit the renewable energy industry.
