Congressional leaders have announced a deal on the stimulus, Alyson reports in from the Hill. More to come as we sort out numbers on the school construction and state stabilization funds.

UPDATE: She’s also hearing the numbers for school modernization and state stabilization could be a little higher than we previously reported. Apparently, school modernization funding may be the sticking point holding up a final agreement. Lawmakers from both chambers are convening to discuss the bill in a few minutes..stay tuned.
