GAO discussed agricultural price and income support programs. GAO found that: (1) programs to support the dairy, wool and mohair, and honey sectors are not doing what they were originally designed to do; (2) modification or elimination of those programs could decrease federal spending by $1 billion annually; and (3) revising or eliminating the programs would foster a more market-driven agricultural sector.
