The Piglet book is very fitting name for Matt Gagnon.

  • TAG : 'Minnesota Piglet Book' Press Conference on Saturday
  • CARSON CITY — That oinking sound you hear means it’s time for the Nevada Piglet Book, a compendium of state and local government waste produced every two years by the Nevada Policy Research Institute.

    The report said: “This year’s edition of The Piglet Book makes clear that government must be restricted to a size and scope that protects the rule of law and allows free individuals to supply the needs of society through the profound intelligences that operate within the marketplace.”

  • The 2016 Congressional Pig Book Summary gives a snapshot of each appropriations bill and details the juiciest projects culled from the complete Pig Book.

    The California Piglet Book combines elements of two perennial CAGW publications the Congressional Pig Book and Prime Cuts with HJTA’s knowledge of the California state budget. The report is but a sample of areas in the state budget where wasteful or corrupt spending can be eliminated providing a valuable resource to legislators local officials the media and taxpayers.

  • The Congressional Pig Book is CAGW's annual compilation of the pork-barrel projects in the federal budget. 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 that were developed in 1991 by CAGW and the Congressional Porkbusters Coalition.

First published in 2005, the Maine Piglet Book has allowed MHPC to highlight the
rampant and appalling examples of the abuse of taxpayer dollars that big government
doesn’t want you to know about.
Taxpayers have been shocked to learn of the gluttonous government waste, millions of dollars spent on pet projects,
and unfathomable amounts devoted to state employees and special favors politicians give to themselves.
MHPC’s unrivalled efforts have helped pave the way for reform at the Maine Turnpike Authority, the Maine State
Housing Authority, and numerous other state agencies that have misused taxpayer dollars.
But there is still work to be done. The 2016 Maine Piglet Book points out that although Maine decreased state spending
in 2014, the biannual budget passed this legislative session contains a nearly $300 million spending increase. Whenever
government adds that much spending, there will always be a tremendous amount of waste.
Maine still has a long way to go at limiting unnecessary initiatives, and preventing our tax dollars from going to
individuals and programs that do not need government assistance.
With Maine policy makers looking to decrease the tax burden, it is more important than ever to streamline our state
government and eliminate waste. By ensuring that every taxpayer dollar is spent wisely and used responsibly, we can
guarantee Maine has an opportunity to grow and thrive.
