Inquirer: One Small Site

Philadelphia Inquirer details spending database.

Don't look now, but Congress is on the verge of doing something useful.

The House is set to approve a bill already passed by the Senate that would make it easier for anyone with a computer to track federal spending.

The bill holds some promise for curbing wasteful "earmarks" and other techniques of pork-barrel spending. Its progress is a victory for grassroots activists over the secretive ways of Congress.
