You can keep a watchful eye on the government as it implements the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through a new website, www.recovery.gov. The site, run by the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board has, as its mission, the goal of explaining the Act, showing you how and where the money is being spent, and giving the public complete transparency about expenditures. Right now the site contains only estimates of spending, but as states and agencies begin to spend their stimulus money and report back to the Board, that information will be posted for your inspection. There is even a forum for your stories and comments about the Act and how the bill affects you personally.
