Pork update

The Times Union has reported that the Senate majority (the Republicans) has posted its Community Projects Fund Grants, (aka Pork), on the Web. The Democratic majority in the Assembly (the Democrats) has yet to do so.

The projects for 2003-2004 are available here. The projects for 2004-2005 are available here.

The story from the TU blog is here.

We at Albany Catholic were especially interested in the comments, such as:
the Senate could not have developed a more impossible to navigate and difficult to digest document dump if they desired.

I’m not sure which is more disgusting: the maximally unusable form the data was presented in, or that there’s no data newer than 2005. Just another way the legislature says “@*$0 you” to the voters.
