The Congressional Pig Book is CAGW's annual compilation of the pork-barrel projects in the federal budget.  The 2009 Pig Book identified 10,160 projects at a cost of $19.6 billion in the 12 Appropriations Acts for fiscal 2009. 

A "pork" project is a line-item in an appropriations bill that designates tax dollars for a specific purpose in circumvention of established budgetary procedures.  To qualify as pork, a project must meet one of 
seven criteria that were developed in 1991 by CAGW and the Congressional Porkbusters Coalition.
