The federal government will release a report later today on how many jobs have been created by stimulus money.

In Maryland, a report shows more than 4,000 jobs have been created or saved by stimulus funds statewide. Michael Enright, a senior advisor to governor Martin O'Malley, says the state still has a ways to go in showing the effectiveness of the stimulus bill. Enright says Maryland has only received half of the more than $4 billion it's expected to get, and has only awarded a fraction of it.
