Is your state recovering?

April 2010 saw a rise in home sales over the previous month.  More homes were purchased as the recovery begins a long recovery process.  A clear sign the economy is expanding & not retracting.

In a few states government programs have been created to subsidize lost wages & keep employees off unemployment benefits.  Illinois is a great example of this program.  Putting Illinois Back To Work is program enacted by the governor Pat Quinn.

Question for you: From your perspective, do you see the economy growing? What signs do you use to see the recovery might be working or isn’t working?
