provides the State Departments of Transportation and Federal Lands 
Agencies with $27.5 billion for highway infrastructure investment. With 
these funds also comes an increased level of data reporting with the 
stated goal of improving transparency and accountability at all levels 
of government. According to President Obama, ``Every American will be 
able to hold Washington accountable for these decisions by going online 
to see how and where their tax dollars are being spent.'' The Federal 
Highway Administration (FHWA) in concert with the Office of the 
Secretary of Transportation (OST) and the other modes within the U.S. 
Department of Transportation (DOT) will be taking the appropriate steps 
to ensure that this accountability and transparency is in place for all 
infrastructure investments.
    The reporting requirements of the ARRA are covered in Sections 1201 
and 1512. Section 1201(c)(1) stipulates that ``notwithstanding any 
other provision of law each grant recipient shall submit to the covered 
agency (FHWA) from which they received funding periodic reports on the 
use of the funds appropriated in this Act for covered programs. Such 
reports shall be collected and compiled by the covered agency (FHWA) 
and transmitted to Congress. Covered agencies (FHWA) may develop such 
reports on behalf of grant recipients (states) to ensure the accuracy 
and consistency of such reports.''
    Section 1512 of the ``Jobs Accountability Act'' requires ``any 
entity that receives recovery funds directly from the Federal 
Government (including recovery funds received through grant, loan, or 
contract) other than an individual,'' including States, to provide 
regular ``Recipient Reports.''
