UPDATE: 2014 Congressional Pig Book Rolling Out May 7, 2014

WASHINGTON--()--Save the date! After a two year hiatus, the little pink book that makes politicians squirm is back.

This year marks CAGW’s 22nd edition of its exposè on pork-barrel spending.

The 2014 Congressional Pig Book features a complete database of pork projects and profiles the most egregious examples from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014. Confirmed speakers at the press conference include Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) who will discuss the current state of earmark reform and the earmark moratorium, and what more needs to be done to permanently stop Congress from practicing its swinish ways.
