As the state of California halts public work projects, the
cities of Lodi and Galt are seeking federal funds to pay for a
"wish list" of projects.
Both city councils have discussed and approved lists of projects
that are "shovel-ready." President Barack Obama has used the term
to define projects in his economic stimulus package that could
start as soon as they received funding.
