2018 Congressional Pig Book to Be Released July 18, 2018

The little pink book that makes Washington, D.C. squirm is back and
bigger than it has been in many years. Citizens Against Government Waste
(CAGW) will release the 2018 Congressional Pig Book at a press
conference one week from today on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at 10 a.m.
EDT. This year marks CAGW’s 26th edition of its exposé on pork-barrel
spending. In the “Drain the Swamp” era, this edition of the Pig Book
will expose the fact that Washington is just as swampy as ever.

The 2018 Congressional Pig Book features a complete database of
pork projects identified by CAGW and the 2018 Pig Book Summary
profiles the most egregious examples from the fiscal year (FY) 2018
appropriations bills.

Confirmed speakers at the press conference include Sens. Jeff Flake
(R-Ariz.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Republican Study
Committee Chairman Mark Walker (R-N.C.), and Reps. Bill Flores
(R-Texas), Jim Banks (R-Ind.), and Ted Budd (R-N.C.). 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 CAGW’s Communications Director, Curtis Kalin by e-mail at ckalin@cagw.org
any time prior to July 18.***
