The $787 billion stimulus package, passed three months ago, came with a flurry of deadlines for government entities to report their spending plans and the impacts of their efforts. Over a dozen government agencies and offices – including the President’s own – had reports due today, according to ProPublica.org. But only a few appear to have met their deadline. Many more did not respond with comment to the investigative Web site on queries about the status of their efforts. (A spokeswoman for Obama "has not responded to requests checking the status" of the report he owes Congress on stimulus programs' compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act, PP reports.) None of the reports, Pro Publica notes, are required to be made public. See ProPublica’s chart for more details.
