This report contains GAO's update of the appropriation and expenditure data for the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund program since a July 2003 report.
Total Superfund program appropriations decreased from fiscal year 1993 to fiscal year 2004, in constant 2003 dollars, from $1,903 million to $1,241 million, respectively. Since fiscal year 2000, the Superfund program has increasingly relied on revenue from general revenue fund appropriations. In fiscal year 2004, the appropriation from the general fund was the only source of funds for the program. Superfund program expenditures between fiscal years 1993 and 2003, also in constant 2003 dollars, have fluctuated between $1,727 million and $1,366 million.
