Extra $300 Million For SSA

     A Federal News Radio article says that the Social Security Administration will receive a special $300 million appropriation under the economic stimulus bill which is likely to become law today. However, I don't see anything about this in the link to the bill which they give. That's probably because what they link to is only Part A of the bill, with the appropriations being in Part B. I would love to see Part B if anyone has a link.

I'm looking as well but on page 156 of Part A there is a $38,000,000 appropriation.

Page 772 of the big file. Part B starts about page 600, SSA buried near the end of it.
