The Pork List
June 28th, 2011
The New York City Council apparently is still planning to vote on the 2012 budget later today (maybe much later – stay tuned).
In the meantime, the council has released its Schedule C, which lists “funding for community based not-for-profit and other public service
Organizations.” This is, in other words, the list of so-called member items, also known as earmarks or pork — some 700 pages worth.
We’ll be combing through it and posting much of it on Councilpedia in the coming days. In the meantime, you can take a look yourself by going here.
Let us now if you find anything interesting — and we’ll do the same.By Gail Robinson on June 28, 2011, 1:06 pm
