Keep track of your tax dollars going from Washington, DC to Merced County.
The government is spending billions to jump-start the U.S. economy by infrastructure and social programs. The Sun-Star wants to let you know where each dollar is going and how it's being spent with this online database. The first wave is arriving. Local agencies are eager to put the money -- and local residents -- to work.
The database will regularly be updated as more money is distributed. If you know of any groups or agencies that should be added, e-mail reporter Scott Jason at email@example.com.
