Before half as much money as the original stimulus package is voted on in Congress, we need to learn what of the first stimulus money has been spent or committed, and how much is still available.
It would seem likely that funds have already been committed to many of those "shovel-ready" projects that President Barack Obama wants to get more money for now. Are there still so many more of those first projects still not committed to being fixed?
Let's find out if the first stimulus round has or hasn't done its job before committing more money.
