If you want to follow the stimulus package state by state, the Center for American Progress is one place to go. CAP released a map on Friday that it says accounts for allocation of 66 percent of the $825 billion stimulus money.
CAP describes the map as showing "the proportion of the funds that will help each state balance their budgets rather than providing additional funding for specific programs."
The organization will continue to release maps this week, it says, "delving into more detail about particular state-level programs in the recovery package."
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
