UNDATED -- On Tuesday, President-elect Barack Obama will take the oath of office and one of the first big challenges will be a stimulus package that could be done within a month.

It's already being criticized and pared down.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation came up with a list approaching a billion dollars worth of projects. But, the department learned the national total for roads will be $30 billion.

ODOT's director, Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe and Representative Dan Boren say that's not enough.
