Wed, 28 Jan 2009 22:40:38 +0000

From our friends at the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget:

Today, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget released a statement urging policymakers not to include policies intended to be permanent as part of the stimulus package, and released a list of some of the policies most likely to be made permanent. See http://www.crfb.org/documents/ReleasePermanent.pdf

The Committee also launched Stimulus Watch, an interactive table detailing all government actions taken to deal with the recent financial and economic turmoil. See Stimulus Watch. For a complete overview of how to use this table, watch this introductory video or read this table key.

Finally, the Committee also released a Budget Update on Debt and Interest Costs in the Budget. See http://www.crfb.org/documents/MicrosoftWord-ReportDebt.pdf

It's nice to see them on the case.
