Recovery.gov goes live

From NBC's Savannah Guthrie and Domenico Montanaro
The administration's Web site showing how stimulus money is spent, state-by-state, is up and running today, per the White House.

"Today, the White House launched www.recovery.gov -- an unprecedented step to increase transparency in government," the White House said in a press release. "The website features a searchable database, allowing Americans to see how and where their tax dollars are being spent. Following the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the website will include a state-by-state report on the impact of law as well a breakdown of spending in the bill by sector.
