- Full Report:
GAO presented material for consideration in preparation of the House Energy and Commerce Committee's views and estimates report on the President's fiscal year (FY) 1984 budget proposals.
The 1984 budget proposes further spending restraints and emphasizes program reforms deemed to be priorities by the administration. Total FY 1984 budget authority will increase by about 6.2 percent. Total outlays will increase by about 5.4 percent. The budget for appropriation accounts and budget functions under the committee's jurisdiction reflects an increase of $4.5 billion in outlays and $24.9 billion in budget authority for FY 1984. A number of programs under the committee's jurisdiction will require reauthorization for FY 1983 or later. To facilitate identification and review of these programs, GAO prepared a special listing of programs with expiring authorizations.
