In his Saturday, January 24, 2009 video address, President Obama talks about his administration’s intentions with respect to rescuing the national economy. The transcript is available here.

As President Obama mentions in his address, Recovery.gov will be the go-to website for information about implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act once it has passed the House and Senate and is signed into law.

Right now the website has essentially an “opening soon” sign up and says, “An oversight board will routinely update this site as part of an unprecedented effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.”

In addition to providing a link to the White House website, recovery.org provides a link to USA.gov which you might find useful. We’ll put that up in the sidebar links.

When I saw that link to USA.gov I laughed. A gentle reminder from our good president that he is not doing this all by himself? Subtle encouragement for us to look to wider resources for answers than just the White House?

It’s a small thing to put up those additional links but it’s in the small things that we see that someone is paying attention.

Whoever is in charge of putting together these websites, they’re doing a swell job so far.
