The Supreme Court recently ruled that aggregate contribution limits to political candidates are unconstitutional. Although we are disappointed by this outcome, we will continue to push for real-time transparency of hard money contributions.

Searchable Database of House Expenditure Reports

On November 30, 2009, the US House of Representatives released the quarterly Statement of Disbursements online for the first time. Since the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer posted these in PDF format, Sunlight created a searchable database of each House member's expenditures. This database contains information that is a subset of the information provided in the PDFs.

The first two databases below present the expenditures first in summary format and then in a more detailed itemized view. (This mimics how the House published the expenditures.)

This release marks a proactive stance from the US House. By voluntarily publishing this information online, the US House is responding to new expectations that information be available online for it to be truly public.

You can also download the databases: summary [262kb CSV] | detail [15mb CSV] | source code

UPDATE: We've added House expenditures by committee in summary and detailed form.
