Follow the Stimulus Money
Piggybacking off my colleague Christopher Weaver's post on state Web sites tracking the stimulus, here are the projects lists released by states and federal agencies.

Oddly enough, some of the lists aren't on the state sites, or even Recovery.gov.
Arkansas Colorado Delaware Idaho Indiana Louisiana Maryland Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Missouri New Hampshire New York North Carolina Oregon Rhode Island South Carolina Tennessee Texas Washington West Virginia Wisconsin
