This report analyzed: (1) the availability of publicly reported data from SWFs and others on their sizes and holdings internationally; and (2) the availability of publicly reported data from the U.S. govżt. and other so

In 2003, wildfires burned roughly 4 million acres in the U.S., destroyed over 5,000 structures, took the lives of 30 firefighters, & cost over $1 billion to suppress.

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act delineates an important set of responsibilities in the accountability community. GAO's bimonthly reviews of selected states' and localities' uses of the Recovery Act funds will examine how funds are being used and achieving the stated purposes of the Recovery Act. A core group of 16 states has been selected to follow over the next few years to provide an ongoing longitudinal analysis of the use of these funds. These states contain about 65% of the U.S. population and are estimated to receive about 2/3 of the intergovernmental grants funds available th
