Alabama Gov. Bob Riley who earlier this month announced that the state's checkbook would go online, today launched a stimulus Web site that will track how the stimulus dollars are spent in the state.

On the site, said Riley in a release, Alabamians will be able to find information on the amounts of stimulus funds coming to various programs.

The Web site will be updated to reflect new information on the stimulus law as federal agencies issue specific regulations on funding uses and requirements. It will also soon include a feature that will allow organizations and individuals to submit proposals for use of the stimulus funds. Submitted proposals will be reviewed to identify projects that could qualify for funding.

"My administration is committed to making sure Alabama carries out its responsibilities under this law with full transparency and accountability. With this Web site, we will keep the public informed about every dollar coming to Alabama, where it goes and how it is spent," Riley said.
