We have the Taxpayers League of Minnesota </http://www.taxpayersleague.org/main/index.php>, which keeps us informed on issues of pork spending. Perhaps other states have similar organizations?

Quote of the Week: “It takes two to speak the truth - one to speak, and another to hear.” — Henry David Thoreau, 1849-----Original Message-----I just took a quick look on the web and ran across Citizens Against Government Waste (http://www.cagw.org/), a nonpartisan organization that tracks pork projects. They have a monthly e-newsletter and send out e-mail alerts (presumably on pork projects in the works). More importantly, they maintain a database of current and past pork legislation--the Pig Book. The 2005 Pig Book can be viewed at http://www.cagw.org/site/PageServer?pagename=reports_pigbook2005 .

I don't really know anything about this group (though I've heard of them before), so it would probably be a good idea to do a little background research on them before relying on their information. Still, the Pig Book and CAGW's other resources look like good places to start.
