Candidate projects for stimulus funding

Stimulus details and strategy
A friend of mine put me on a website called http://www.stimuluswatch.org which according to the website

“was built to help the new administration keep its pledge to invest stimulus money smartly, and to hold public officials to account for the taxpayer money they spend. We do this by allowing you, citizens around the country with local knowledge about the proposed “shovel-ready” projects in your city, to find, discuss and rate those projects. These projects are not part of the stimulus bill. They are candidates for funding by federal grant programs once the bill passes.”

It is pretty cool to see what projects in your state or city are “shovel ready.” There is a voting/comments section where you can talk about the viability of any project. Each project has the estimated cost and how many jobs will be created. I think we really have to use these tools that help us understand what the government is doing with our money. Let me know what you think,

Stay up fam,
