Congress and the President are getting ready to spend billions of dollars to try to stimulate the economy. As a result, the U.S. Conference of Mayors has responded by releasing a list of “shovel-ready” projects in cities around the country that the mayors would like to see funded. President Obama, however, has promised to spend stimulus dollars only on critical projects.
“What we need to do is examine what are the projects where we’re going to get the most bang for the buck [and] how are we going to make sure taxpayers are protected,” he has said. “You know, the days of just pork coming out of Congress as a strategy, those days are over.”
StimulusWatch.org was built to to help the new administration keep its pledge and to hold public officials to account. We do this by allowing you, citizens around the country with local knowledge about the proposed projects in your city, to find, discuss and rate those projects.
