Senator Lindsey Graham recently released a written statement about the stimulus package. As Governor Mark Sanford’s deadline approaches as to whether he will except the stimulus money intended for education ($700 million) or if he will refuse it, Graham wrote, “We can refuse to accept it, but we cannot refuse to pay it back.

White House Budget Chief Peter Orszag wrote a letter to Senator Graham in an attempt to clarify the implementation of the the stimulus funds. You can read that letter by clicking here.
