President Barack Obama is in Colorado today, where he's scheduled to sign into law at 2:40 p.m. Eastern time the controversial $787 billion stimulus bill passed by Congress last week.

The bill, which backers say will save or create 3 million to 4 million jobs through $575 billion in government appropriations and direct spending plus $212 billion in tax cuts, includes several provisions aimed at boosting home sales.
