Shovelwatch: Tracking the stimulus from bills to building

ShovelWatch is a joint project of the non-profit investigative outfit ProPublica, the morning news program The Takeaway and WNYC, New York’s flagship public radio station.

With investigative reporting, interactive features, and (not least) help from you, we’ll be tracking the stimulus bill dollars as they travel from Congress to your neighborhood. With your help, we’ll make sure that one of the biggest, fastest appropriations ever has a big, fast army to track whether it is well spent.

If you're interested, not only can you see what the bill contains, but also look at a state by state breakdown, analysis of the bill, what the bill leaves out, projections for when things will start, important projects not getting money, etc.

Now if only they could start a site to monitor all those effective tax cuts. Krugmansheadexplodingwatch or something.
