The L.A. County Board of Supervisors voted to create a task force to handle the county's funds from the $787 billion federal stimulus package.The supervisors agreed on Tuesday to have the county's chief executive officer create a team to make sure the money is dispersed quickly.

The county could receive $6.5 billion, which could create 75,000 to 100,000 jobs, but an economist says the state's $40 billion budget deficit could take part of that money.
