Beacon’s 2019 Pork Report

December 11, 2019 9:03AM

This marks the 14th year of the Beacon Center’s Pork Report, our annual report exposing government waste, fraud, and abuse. While the Pork Report is a fun and creative outlet for our team to expose the top 25 most ridiculous instances of government spending in the past year, it is also a call to action to the state and local governments to cut the waste from their budgets. After all, it is state and local taxpayers who are funding all of the “pork” found in this year’s report.

If there is a specific issue in this report that really bothers you and you want to do something about it, please contact Taylor Dawson ( She can help direct you to the right place.

Thanks again for your support of the Beacon Center, and we hope you love/hate this year’s iteration of the Pork Report.
