Recovery Act is a model for enhanced accountability

You might have missed it with the Thanksgiving holiday and all, but news emerged last week that the federal government is enforcing accountability provisions in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 by attempting to take back stimulus grants where the recipients haven't said what they're doing with the money.

It's a good example of a more transparent, accountable and efficient government. It's also got some lessons for Colorado lawmakers as they prepare for the 2011 session, as we pointed out in a paper released a couple of weeks back.
