"Full accountability and complete transparency is essential." -- Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman (pictured)

Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman yesterday announced the launch of a Web site dedicated to providing information on Nebraska's stimulus funding. The site serves as the state of Nebraska's portal for informing citizens on the use of federal stimulus funding received under the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). It will be updated regularly as funding is received and new projects are announced.

"This Web site will give Nebraskans direct access to stimulus information," Heineman said. "Full accountability and complete transparency is essential. We intend to provide frequent updates on how Nebraska uses this funding. This Web site is a way to get information on the more than 50 state-run programs expected to receive federal stimulus funding."

Recovery.Nebraska.gov allows users to sign up for RSS feeds, allowing anyone interested to receive automatic updates as new information is posted.

In addition, those using Twitter, a free Web-based social media site, can sign up to receive Nebraska's stimulus updates. Twitter allows registered users to follow information from sources most relevant to them in real-time.
