Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO discussed major federal policy, management, and program issues facing Congress and the new administration in natural resources management.

GAO found that: (1) increases in annual appropriations for managing natural resources have not been large enough to fulfill infrastructure and staffing needs; (2) an alternative for addressing the declining condition of the nation's natural resources and related infrastructure is to obtain new sources of funding; and (3) there is a need for providing the proper balance between the nation's natural resources use and conservation for future generations.
