The $19 million economic stimulus package was signed by Gov. Owens Monday.
It includes stipulations to boost tourism, state agriculture and provide assistance for those out of work.
At least $10 million will go towards promoting tourism, which has suffered because of the weakened economy and the drought.
Up to $7 million will be put into re-employment for people who have lost jobs.
Owens says the state is investing in its own future and that investment will start paying dividends very shortly.
