porkbustersnewsm.jpgPORKBUSTERS UPDATE: The Federal Funding Accountability and Transparancy Act, S. 2590 has unanimously passed the Senate.

Take that, secret-holders! Bill Frist reports:

The passage of this legislation is a triumph for transparency in government, for fiscal discipline, and for the bipartisan citizen journalism of the blogosphere.

Without the efforts of ordinary Americans empowered by the Internet, including many hardworking members of the iFrist Volunteers, this legislation might easily have been successfully obstructed. Instead, the unprecedented synergy between online grassroots activists and Senate leadership provides a new model for participatory democracy in action.

I look forward to reconciling S. 2590 with its counterpart in the House and delivering this deserving legislation to the desk of President Bush for his signature.

Onward and upward. Or, in the case of pork spending, hopefully downward.
