JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon wants your ideas about how to use Missouri's portion of the federal economic stimulus money.
Nixon launched a Web site — transform.mo.gov — on Monday to solicit ideas from citizens, local governments, businesses and non-profits. Nixon says he hopes to gather as many ideas as possible from a wide range of sources.
People can submit general ideas or more detailed proposals, which require a proposed time frame and an estimated number of new jobs.
In the Web site's first five hours, Nixon's office says it already had received 90 proposals and ideas.
Missouri is slated to receive about $4 billion from the stimulus package, although that amount does not include competitive grants the state might secure.
Nixon says the money will be used for education and job training, new technology and infrastructure.
