Abstract:

Last year, in testimony submitted for the record to the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on EPAs budget proposal for fiscal year 1991, we outlined a list of environmental problems facing the nation that were not fully addressed by the agencys request for funds. Indeed, for some years, GAO has regularly reported on shortcomings in EPA programs that often resulted from inadequate funding. This year, in the context of EPAs budget request for the upcoming year, we would like to move beyond this description of unmet needs and provide GAOs perspectives on how we as a nation might begin to balance national environmental protection goals with budget realities.
