GAO presented material for consideration in preparation of the Senate Environment and Public Works 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. Appropriation accounts and budget functions under the committee's jurisdiction reflect an increase of $1.2 billion in outlays and a decrease of $688 million in budget authority for FY 1984. Decreases in outlays are proposed for natural resources and environment appropriations including water resources programs and Army Corps of Engineers projects. Increased outlays are proposed for transportation programs. Other decreases would affect spending for community and regional development programs. GAO noted that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration appropriation is being renamed as Highway Traffic Safety Grants. New activities of concern to the committee include: (1) proposed legislation to permit charging of user fees to be deposited in the Inland Waterway Trust Fund; (2) additional appropriations for the Appalachian Highway System; and (3) reauthorization of a number of programs under the committee's jurisdiction.
