NBC New York also utilized ProPublica's stimulus data to take a closer look at the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Their investigative team tracked the local projects that were so-called "shovel-ready," but have yet to start, pointing out that in the tri-state, nearly 60 percent of the projects still listed as "not started" are responsibilities of state and local governments.
