Illinois Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Congressional Earmarks – Part 2 – Dick Durbin’s

Today we look at money that our second ranking United States Senator Dick Durbin earmarked in this year’s budget.

Citizens for Common Sense posted copies of the original documents. The ones for Transportation and Housing and Urban Development can be found here.

They are not easy to find and I may have missed some in the over 100 pages of this part of the budget.
