The President has stated time and time again that The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (TARP) will be carried out with full transparency and accountability. With that the White House has established as a tool that we can use to follow how our tax dollars will help put America back to work and begin our climb out of the economic challenges we face today.

In recent days, our local papers have articles relating to "shovel-ready" projects for the Lake County and articles that talk about projects we need completed in Lake County.

The EYE has found a very useful resource to monitor and have a voice in what our elected officials are requesting be funded by the TARP.

You can drill down to Lake County Illinois to see who already has "shovel-ready" projects requested. As of now, only North Chicago and Highland Park are noted.

Stay tuned and get involved!
