LegiStorm: A Searchable Database of US Congressional Salaries,Gifts and Earmarks

LegiStorm is a free, searchable database of US Congressional Salaries,Staff salaries,Foreign Gifts and Earmarks,Financial Disclosures and Trips. LegiStorm touts itself as bringing transparency to the U.S. Congress by disseminating public documents and non-partisan information over the web.

From their About Us page:

LegiStorm launched in September 2006. Our web site is dedicated to providing a variety of important information about the US Congress.

Based on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, LegiStorm's first information product was a database of congressional staff salaries but we have now added other valuable information, such as the most comprehensive database of all privately financed trips taken by members of Congress and congressional staffers.

The information is provided in a strictly factual, non-partisan fashion. We have no political affiliations and no political purpose except to make the workings of Congress as transparent as possible. We expect this resource to be useful to journalists, researchers, lobbyists and current and would-be staffers - as well as regular citizens who simply want to know how their representatives spend public money.

This website is an excellent resource for those interested in who is spending what and how much they are making.
