Show Me The Stimulus Money

Lee, Jeannette J.
February 2009
National Journal;2/22/2009, p21
This article focuses on the efforts made by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama and the Democratic-led Congress to create a good oversight on how the economic stimulus funds will be spent. Many top nonpartisan groups have said that the oversight provisions in the stimulus bill are quite good, but they anticipate that cases of missing money will be much more arcane and harder to detect given the size the stimulus. Recipients of the stimulus funds will have to post descriptions and costs of their projects on a public Web site.
