- Full Report:
GAO presented material for consideration in preparation of the House Science and Technology Committee's views and estimates report on the President's fiscal year 1984 budget proposals.
GAO found that, in administration efforts to restrain Federal spending and emphasize program reforms, appropriations accounts and budget functions under the committee's jurisdiction will be decreased by $2.3 billion and total obligations will decrease by $449 million. Continued spending priorities, however, will be given to scientific research and development programs. GAO also noted those programs which will require reauthorization for fiscal year 1983 and later.
