Looking at the web site of Taxpayers for Common Sense is a list in the Defense appropriation bill.
We published the list from the Commerce, Justice and Science bill yesterday.
Again, nothing I can see for McHenry County, but Republican 16th District Congressman Don Manzullo has his name on $5.5 million. I see none for 8th District Congresswoman Melissa Bean (D-Barrington). She had some in yesterday’s list, but Kane County’s Democrat, Bill Foster has some significant chunks.
The projects are listed alphabetically by the last name of the sponsoring United States Representative or Senator Dick Durbin, who sponsored some by himself.
You may be amazed at the number of projects sponsored by Peoria’s Ray LaHood. The Republican left office last month and is now President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Transportation.
