Seems to me that the public works departments of local governments should always have shovel ready projects ready for implementation.  For that we need for the federal government to actually define "shovel ready" ... perhaps define it as a project which can be physically started within X months ... where X would be a small number.  You might want to include another term "design ready" which means that you are ready to send it to the civil engineers, but all the environmental studies and political decisions have been made.  In other words, the term "shovel ready" is way way too vague to base something like a stimulus package on. 

Other big questions i have is why it took about 5 months from when this project was chosen to be stimulated for it to be let out for bid.  Why are things moving so slow?  Then too WIH (where in hell) is the RFB?

You might or not find a def of shovel ready in one of the bills. It should be there, if not. RFB is undefined.

I heard that the Obama administration is deprecating the term shovel ready in favor of some other euphamism.  Here is our impression of shovel ready:
