FYI Number 4: January 9, 2001

Increases, Decreases: A Comparison of Budgetary Outcomes for FY 2001

The current prediction is that President-elect George Bush will send his FY 2002 budget request to Congress in March. The Clinton Administration will be releasing a budget this month. Before looking ahead, a final look back at the changes in program budgets covered in FYI, starting with the budgets that increased by the greatest percentage over the previous year. These aggregate figures do not include the across-the-board 0.22% cut that was made by Congress in late December, other general reduction adjustments, changes in program content, or the ramping down or ramping up of major facilities or instruments.
