“Citizens Against Government Waste is Washington's leading opponent of pork-barrel spending.” - Washington Post

State Piglets

In 2002, CAGW launched its series of Piglet Books. Piglet Books are published in conjunction with state policy associations, combining CAGW's years of waste-fighting experience with local expertise of state spending.  With budget deficits in many states and the constant threat of tax increases,Piglet Books reveal where wasteful spending can be eliminated, providing valuable resources to legislators and taxpayers.

Note: If you are looking for federally funded pork by state, see the Congressional Pig Book and its complete database of pork.
