The Appropriations Clause authorizes Congress to spend money and requires that it keep a record of the expenditures. Specifically, Article I, Section 9, Clause 7 states:

No money shall be drawn from the treasury, but in consequence of appropriations made by law; and a regular statement and account of receipts and expenditures of all public money shall be published from time to time.
