2007 Congressional Pig Book

Citizens Against Government Waste has released the 2007 Congressional Pig Book. The Pig Book is CAGW's annual compilation of all the pork-barrel projects in the federal budget. The 2007 Pig Book identifies 2,658 pork projects at a cost of $13.2 billion in the Defense and Homeland Security Appropriations Acts for fiscal 2007. Only two of the 11 appropriations bills were enacted by Congress and the remaining nine were subject to a moratorium on earmarks. CAGW has identified $254 billion in pork since 1991
