In February, we asked HuffPost readers to help us dig through the stimulus bill, and hundreds of readers wrote in with great tips, including the news that a provision to extend health care coverage for some laid-off workers had been stripped from the Senate version of the legislation.
Now it's time for some follow up reporting. Money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is going out to state and local governments, and we'd love if readers across the country could provide us with a view from the ground. Do you see shovels hitting the dirt? Is our money being spent wisely?
The blog at WhiteHouse.gov is keeping tabs on local news stories showcasing stimulus dollars at work -- adoption programs in Arkansas, green jobs in California, electronic health records in Florida -- but some stories might not make the cut. To wit: pieces like the Boston Globe's feature on backlash from local officials in Massachusetts who claim some poor school districts are being skipped over because of a state formula for doling out the money.
