Got my Washington Workforce Development Newsletter email today from the state's Workforce Training and and Education Coordinating Board. I clicked through to take a look at the website that's been set up to help state residents understand the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and how stimulus funds are being spent in that state. It's at recovery.wa.gov.
As many people know, President Obama has set up a site at Recovery.gov to track stimulus spending nationally.
So I wondered if any other states have done the same thing. I checked recovery.wi.gov and found that Wisconsin has set up a page for its citizens. My next two tries (NJ and FL) didn't turn anything up. By now I was hooked, and went through all fifty states (plus DC and the eight other non-state jurisdictions).
When will the other states catch up?
If you find other state pages dedicated to accountability and tracking of stimulus spending, please let me know.
