The little pink book that makes Washington, D.C. squirm is back and bigger than ever. Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) will release the 2019 Congressional Pig Book at a press conference this Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 10 a.m. EDT. This year marks CAGWs 27th edition of its expos on pork-barrel spending.
The 2019 Congressional Pig Book features a complete database of pork projects identified by CAGW and the 2019 Pig Book Summary profiles the most egregious examples from the fiscal year (FY) 2019 appropriations bills.
Confirmed speakers at the press conference include Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), and Reps. Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.), Bill Flores (R-Texas), and Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.).
The speakers will discuss the current state of earmark reform and what must be done to permanently stop members of Congress from practicing their swinish ways.
***Members of the media who wish to attend the press conference must RSVP to CAGWs Communications Director, Curtis Kalin by e-mail at [email protected] any time prior to June 12.***
