Access the Earmarks Database

The Data Comes via Taxpayers for Common Sense

Note: At the Top of this Legistorm Page (in the white box), It Mentions that Data from 2008 and 2009 is Available. However, if you look at the drop down menus or review this blog post you'll learn that data for 2010 was added about two weeks ago and ready for searching.

Hat Tip: Al Tompkins

See Also: Today, The Hill Newspaper has a story about a group, EarmarkData.org, who wants what was mentioned in a White House fact sheet, "...a comprehensive, bipartisan, state-of-the-art disclosure database that allows Americans to examine the details of every proposed earmark before a vote is taken—one that is fully searchable and otherwise user-friendly."

The Earmark.org Blog has links to U.S. Congressional sites where you can access current earmarks one member at a time and not in a searchable format. As you'll see these are for FY 2011, data not accessible via Legistorm

    Tuesday, 19th August 2014

    Organisations face growing legal and reputational risks associated with doing business. These risks have become even more significant because of mounting pressure from regulators and an increase in business carried out in higher risk jurisdictions. Increasingly complex business regulations such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act ensure that companies thoroughly examine third-party relationships to tackle the risk of money laundering, bribery and corruption and sanctions regimes. Mark Dunn looks at what the law says regarding Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Bribery & Corruption, and how organisations can mitigate the risk of becoming involved in corruption through third parties (e.g. agents, suppliers) by implementing a simplified or Enhanced Due Diligence process.
