Rebuilding czar considered

From this:

...Republican Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire and Democrat Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts said today that they have introduced legislation to create a federal agency to oversee the recovery. The director of the agency, appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate, would oversee all federal resources involved in the recovery effort, under the legislation.
``We must provide an accountable structure for ensuring that these taxpayer dollars are spent wisely and in a systematic way,'' Gregg said in a statement.
Bush said Sept. 26 that a federal reconstruction czar is ``an idea that I'm still considering.''
