Building America’s Future launches stimulus-watch site

Posted on March 4, 2009

Building America’s Future (BAF), a bipartisan and national infrastructure coalition, launched a stimulus-watch Webpage, www.investininfrastructure.org/stimulus, on its main Website.

“Our portal will serve as a one-stop-shop to track how elected officials are using stimulus funds to improve local infrastructure,” said Polly Trottenberg, executive director for BAF. “We applaud the states, cities and agencies that have created Websites to track every dollar of the stimulus. The majority of Americans support infrastructure investment, and they rightly deserve a guarantee that all funding will be used to increase our safety and quality of life and help create jobs and stimulate the economy.” 

The portal links to each state’s stimulus/economic recovery Website, as well as related local news.
