Gov. Butch Otter will release the first – long – list of stimulus funding requests he’s received this afternoon at 4. Otter’s press secretary, Jon Hanian, said today’s list will be just the request from non-governmental organizations; those from government agencies will follow on Tuesday. “We’ve gotten requests from charities, cities, counties – we’ve received thousands and thousands of pages. It’s voluminous,” he said. The initial list to be released will include the entity applying, the project name, a brief description, and a dollar figure. “Once we get the requests, the executive stimulus committee will get to work.” Hanian said. Their recommendations will be complete and to the governor by March 19.
