CONGRESSIONAL QUARTERLY RELEASES SPECIAL REPORT ANALYZING ALL 13 FY'94 CONGRESSIONAL APPROPRIATIONS BILLS

 /ADVANCE/ WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Congressional Quarterly Inc. (CQ) today announced the release of "Where the Money Goes," a Dec. 11 special supplement to the CQ Weekly Report providing in-depth analysis of the FY 1994 appropriations bills.
 "Where the Money Goes" breaks down each of the 13 appropriations bills program by program to compare how much was spent on each program in FY 1993; how much was requested for FY 1994 by Clinton, the House and the Senate; and how much was allocated in the final version of the bill. It offers behind-the-scenes insight into the provisions of each bill, as well as political compromises made over every major program's funding level.
 The report also has charts and features detailing where the pork spending went, the members and interest groups fighting for and against each project and the winners and losers in the pork barrel battle.
 "Where the Money Goes" provides in clear, readable language, an objective analysis of government spending and the appropriations process. It details valuable information for both Washington neophytes and political insiders. For example:
 -- More than $250,000 is appropriated to the architect of the
 Capitol's Flag Office to fly 150,000 flags over the Capitol so
 members can send them to constituents.
 -- President Clinton's National Service program will cost
 $370 million in its first year.
 -- The three living former speakers of the House will receive a
 total of $417,000 to pay for their current staffs and are
 authorized to spend an additional $67,000 each on "other"
 expenses.
 -- $7.5 billion is appropriated for supplemental feeding programs
 such as school lunches, breakfasts and summer food service.
 -- $725,000 is allocated to Senate leaders and officers to hire
 consultants "on a temporary or intermittent basis." One Senate
 leader has had a temporary consultant on his staff since 1987.
 -- Congress appropriated almost $13 billion to pay for foreign aid
 and U.S. participation in international military and economic
 efforts.
 "CQ's award-winning staff -- the largest full-time press contingent on Capitol Hill -- spent weeks studying every paragraph of every appropriations bill to provide the only concise, readable account of how Congress spends the taxpayers' money," said Neil Skene, editor and publisher of CQ.
 Since 1945, the CQ Weekly Report has provided complete, accurate, objective coverage of all significant events on Capitol Hill and in American politics. The last edition of "Where the Money Goes" (FY 1992) was nominated for the National Magazine Awards.
