Denver (AP) – Taxpayers wondering where stimulus money is going are getting new details.
A national board set up to monitor stimulus spending plans to release a big report on direct federal spending by state on Thursday. The report will include Colorado jobs numbers.
The analysis by the recovery accountability and transparency board will show jobs created by direct spending on federal projects such as work in a national park.
Later this month, the board will release grant data, which will include jobs such as construction workers hired to repair local highways using federal money.
The job count will not tally jobs created by tax cuts or attempt to quantify the ripple effect of stimulus spending.
