MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin has upgraded its Web site that tracks how the state is using federal stimulus money.

Gov. Jim Doyle said the changes are designed to make the site more user-friendly so people can see how the money is being spent across the state.

The Web site now contains an interactive map showing money that has been awarded county by county, including details such who received contracts with the federal money.

Data can also be sorted and downloaded to individual users’ computers.

According to Doyle’s office, the changes were suggested by a national policy resource center that promotes government accountability. Good Jobs First had previously ranked Wisconsin’s stimulus Web site as fourth-best in the country.
