General and special funds:
APPALACHIAN REGIONAL COMMISSION
For expenses necessary to carry out the programs authorized by
the Appalachian Regional Development Act of 1965, as amended,
notwithstanding section 405 of said Act, øand¿ for necessary expenses
for the Federal Co-Chairman and the alternate on the Appalachian
Regional Commission, øand¿, for payment of the Federal share of

This appropriation establishes a framework for joint Federal and State efforts to create opportunities for self-sustaining economic development and improved quality of life for
the people of Appalachia. Program investments are made in
the Appalachian Region for wide-ranging assistance including
development highways and area development. The States, acting through the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), are
responsible for recommending local and State projects within
their borders for assistance under this program. Special
targeting to distressed counties is a part of the State allocation formula.
1. Appalachian development highway system.—The Appalachian development highway system (ADHS), including local

access roads, is designed to improve the accessibility of Appalachia; to reduce highway transportation costs to and within
Appalachia; and to provide the highway transportation facilities necessary to accelerate the overall development of Appalachia. Studies have found that the ADHS has been important
to economic development in the Region.
The 1999 Budget marks the first year that construction
of the ADHS would be funded solely from the Highway Trust
Fund under the Administration’s National Economic Crossroads Efficiency Act (NEXTEA) legislation. This bill includes
$2.19 billion for the ADHS from FY 1998 to FY 2003. Annual
proposed funding levels are $200 million, $290 million, $350
million, $400 million, $450 million, and $500 million, respectively. The ARC would exercise programmatic and administrative control over these funds, as it has with appropriated
funds.
The cumulative status of the system of roads, including
mileage prefinanced by the States, follows:

2. Area development program.—Area development funds are
provided to each of the Appalachian States by allocation. This
funding is used to help the regional economy become more
competitive by putting in place the building blocks for selfsustaining economic development, while continuing to provide
special assistance to the Region’s most distressed and underdeveloped counties. In 1998, the Commission allocated a minimum of 30% of area development funding specifically to these
97 severely distressed counties in addition to the overall State
allocations.
The area development program funds projects which advance the goals and objectives of ARC’s strategic plan. This
strategic plan commits ARC to achieving five broad goals
which are undergirded by 13 objectives. These five goals are:
(1) Appalachian residents will have the skills and knowledge
necessary to compete in the world economy in the 21st century; (2) Appalachian communities will have the physical infrastructure necessary for self-sustaining economic development and improved quality of life; (3) the people of Appalachia
will have the vision and capacity to mobilize and work together for sustained economic progress and improvement of
their communities; (4) Appalachian residents will have access
to financial and technical resources to help build dynamic
and self-sustaining local economies; and, (5) Appalachian residents will have access to affordable, quality health care. The
Commission has taken aggressive steps to ensure that the
area development program will make progress on accomplishing these goals, to better target resources to those communities with the greatest needs, and to increase flexibility in
project submission.
Each Governor will submit for Commission approval an
annual strategy statement detailing the areas of emphasis
within the Region for ARC funds. Projects submitted by the

Governors will include a description of goals and objectives,
and projected inputs, outputs, efficiency and outcomes. After
project completion, projected outputs and outcomes will be
compared to actual results.
The Commission’s regional initiatives are a key component
to accomplishing the strategic plan and include specifically
allocated area development funding. In 1998, these regional
initiatives are: (1) internationalization of the economy; (2)
telecommunications; (3) leadership and civic development; and
(4) creating entrepreneurial economies. The first three initiatives, launched prior to the adoption of the strategic plan
are in a finish-up mode and will not receive designated funding after 1998. There is strong evidence that the work encompassed in these initiatives has become imbedded in each
state’s area development strategy. The fourth initiative, ‘‘creating entrepreneurial economies,’’ is the centerpiece policy of
the Federal Co-Chairman and received an allocation from the
overall area development funding of $5 million in FY 1998.
A similar allocation is expected for 1999.
The budget for 1999 provides $57 million for area development.
The approximate project workload follows:

3. Local development districts and technical assistance programs.—The multi-county local development districts (LDDs)
are the mechanism for ensuring that the local governments
in Appalachia plan and work together on a regional basis.
They provide competent support staff to member governments
to plan, initiate, and implement projects at the grassroots
level. Funding for LDDs was increased to $5 million in 1998
to reflect their increased role in strategic planning and performance measurement efforts. Technical assistance serves to
strengthen the state and local governments, LDDs and nonprofit organizations in the Region. The 1999 Budget provides
$5 million for the LDDs and $1 million for technical assistance, with the approximate approved workload as follows:

4. Salaries and expenses.—The Federal Co-Chairman represents the Federal Government on the Commission and leads
in the coordination of the Appalachian program with Federal
agencies. Since 1989, the Office of the Federal Co-Chairman
includes an Inspector General.
The Federal Government contributes 50 percent of the expenses of a professional staff which works with the States
and the Federal staff in operating the program. The staff
members are not Federal employees but are employees of
the jointly-supported Commission. The budget for 1999 provides $4 million for salaries and expenses.

(Legislative proposal, not subject to PAYGO)

of the country that has tremendous wide-ranging needs. Although specific allocations for economic development activities
would be decided by the members of the DRC, it is anticipated
that the requested funding of $26 million would be allocated
approximately as follows: area development (e.g., distressed
counties programs, physical infrastructure, job training, entrepreneurship), $20 million; assistance to the state-local regional economic development entities (LDDs) who would participate in project development and evaluation, $3 million;
technical assistance, $1 million; and additional administrative
expenses, $2 million. To capitalize on the rich body of experience and to encourage sharing of economic development strategies, as well as to minimize administrative costs, the DRC
and the ARC would share a common staff. Although the requested funds would pay the full additional costs of the requested staff in 1999, after 1999, the staff of the DRC and
the ARC would be jointly funded by the states (50 percent)
and the federal government (50 percent).

The Administration proposes to apply the ARC federal-state
partnership economic development model to the Lower Mississippi Delta Region. This includes the 219 county region
in seven states established by P.L. 100–460 which comprised
the Lower Mississippi River Delta Commission. Capitalizing
on the successful ARC model and staff expertise, the Delta
Region Economic Development Program would establish the
Delta Regional Commission (DRC) to assist the economic development of this Region. The ARC Federal Co-Chairman
would serve as the Federal Co-Chairman of the DRC. The
Governors of the seven member states would serve as Commission members and would elect one of these Governors
as States’ Co-Chairman.
The economic distress in the Delta Region is widespread
and protracted—over half the Delta counties have experienced
poverty rates greater than 20 percent for at least the last
four decades. This proposal would apply the proven ARC regional economic development model to an adjoining region

The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance
Board (Access Board) was established by section 502 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to ensure compliance with the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968. Since that time, the Access
Board has been the only independent Federal agency whose
primary mission is accessibility for people with disabilities.
The Access Board has responsibility under three major pieces
of legislation: the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (ABA);
the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA); and the
Telecommunications Act of 1996.
The Access Board’s first major responsibility was to enforce
the ABA, ensuring accessibility in facilities built, altered, or
leased using certain Federal funds. In fiscal year 1998, the
Board will continue to process, investigate, and resolve complaints of noncompliance. The Access Board has a proven
record of voluntary, amicable resolution of access issues.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Access
Board gained responsibility for two major public roles: to develop minimum accessibility guidelines for places of public
accommodation, commercial facilities, State and local government facilities, and transportation vehicles and facilities, all
of which are covered under the ADA; and to offer training
and technical assistance to individuals and organizations
throughout the country on removing architectural, transportation and communication barriers.
In pursuing these responsibilities under the ADA, the
Board uses citizens’ advisory committees, negotiated rulemaking, and other communication channels to encourage the
public’s full participation in the Federal rulemaking process
for developing its ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). In
addition, the Board is working with the building industry
toward the development of a single set of minimum accessibility guidelines, using ADAAG as the basis.
Under the Telecommunications Act, the Access Board is
charged with developing accessibility guidelines for telecommunications equipment and customer premises equipment, in conjunction with the Federal Communications Commission. The Telecommunications Act requires that such
equipment be ‘‘designed, developed, and fabricated to be accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, if readily
achievable.’’
Consistent with the Government Performance and Results
Act, (GPRA) the Access Board has adopted this mission statement to guide its programs: The Board is the catalyst for
achieving an accessible America. The statement recognizes
that achieving an accessible America requires bringing together public and private sectors. The Board has established
long range goals that aim to bring together public and private
sectors for achieving an accessible America. The Board’s longrange goals are to:
• Take a leadership role in the development of codes and
standards for accessibility
• Work in partnership with Federal agencies and others
to make the Federal government a model of compliance
with accessibility standards
• Be known as the leading source of information about
accessibility and disseminate that information to our customers in effective ways
In FY 1999, the Board will implement specific action strategies for each of these goals. In the development of codes
and standards, the Board will have identified the codes most
relevant to accessibility and will initiate a process to work
closely with the codes organizations to harmonize ADAAG
and the codes. Working to make the Federal government a
model of compliance, the Board will identify three to six other

Federal agencies to identify benchmarks for the best practices
in ABA compliance systems. In the distribution of information
on accessibility, the Board will build on its existing partnerships in the private sector to develop and distribute technical
assistance materials.

The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind
or Severely Disabled was established by the Wagner-O’Day
Act of 1938, as amended. Its primary objective is to increase
the employment opportunities for people who are blind or
have other severe disabilities and, whenever possible, to prepare them to engage in competitive employment. In 1999,
approximately 36,000 people who are blind or have other severe disabilities are projected to be employed in over 660
producing nonprofit agencies. The Committee’s duties include
promoting the program; determining which products and services are suitable for Government procurement from qualified
nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind or have other
severe disabilities; maintaining a procurement list of such
products and services; determining the fair market price for
products and services on the procurement list; and making
rules and regulations necessary to carry out the purposes
of the Act. In 1999 the Committee expects to have nearly
5,300 items on its Procurement List and sales of $900 million.
The Committee staff’s responsibilities include promoting
and assessing the overall program; supervising the selection
and assignment of new products and services; assisting in
establishing prices; reviewing and adjusting these prices; verifying the qualifications of nonprofit agencies; and monitoring
their performance.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) administers the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936, as amended.
The purpose of the CFTC is to further the economic utility
of the futures markets by encouraging their efficiency, assuring their integrity, and protecting participants against abusive trade practices, fraud, and deceit. The object of commodity futures trading regulation is to enable the markets to
better serve their designated functions of providing a price
discovery mechanism and a means of offsetting price risk.
By properly serving these functions, the futures markets serve
the public interest by contributing toward better planning,
more efficient distribution and consumption, and more economical marketing. The commodity futures and options markets represent one of America’s most innovative and competitive contributions to the international financial services industry.
The Administration proposes additional resources above the
fiscal year 1998 level for the Commission. These increases
would enhance the Commission’s ability to investigate and
detect fraud and abuse and ensure the continued integrity
of the commodities markets. In addition, such increases would
provide the Commission with the enforcement and surveillance resources necessary to respond to the continued growth
and use of complex trading and derivative instruments.
Market surveillance, analysis and research.—Responsibilities under this program include daily surveillance of the market activity of large individual traders and fundamental economic market factors to insure orderly markets. Contract
terms and conditions are reviewed to insure conformity with
current cash marketing conditions and adequate deliverable
supplies. This program also systematically investigates the
functioning of markets and market users and develops better
tools to assist in detecting and preventing price distortions.

Enforcement.—The enforcement program is responsible for

or regulations. These violations may include actual and attempted market manipulations, cheating and defrauding customers, and abusive trading practices such as fictitious trading, wash trading, and pre-arranged trading. This program
may seek remedies through the administrative process or by
injunctive actions in the Federal Courts.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting provides grants
to qualified public television and radio stations to be used
at their discretion for purposes related to program production
or acquisition and general operations. The Corporation also
supports the production and acquisition of radio and television
programs for national distribution. In addition, the Corporation assists in the financing of several system-wide activities,
including national satellite interconnection services and the
payment of music royalty fees, and provides limited technical
assistance, research, and planning services to improve systemwide capacity and performance. The appropriation for the Corporation is enacted two years in advance. For 2000, an appropriation of $300 million was enacted in the 1998 appropriations act.
For 2001, the Administration is requesting $340 million
for general programming and system support. In addition,
the Corporation should be reauthorized this year, its most
recent authorization having expired at the end of fiscal year
1996. Public broadcasting plays a vital role in the educational
and cultural development of our Nation. The proposed funding
level will allow the Corporation to carry out its role of facilitating the provision of universally available educational, noncommercial public telecommunications services that meet the
needs of local communities across the country. The table
below illustrates the 1999–2001 funding levels.

In April 1997, the Federal Communications Commission
issued regulations requiring broadcasters to transition from
analog to digital transmissions. Public broadcasters must convert to digital by 2003 or lose their spectrum license. Funds
made available in this account to the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting (CPB) will facilitate public broadcasters’ transition to digital signals. 1999 funds totaling $50 million are
requested as part of a multi-year initiative totaling $375 million over five years. Funds will support necessary expenses
such as the base equipment transition requirements to ensure
continued universal access to public broadcasting in digital
format.

The Veterans Judicial Review Act, 38 U.S.C. §§ 7251–7292
(1988) established the United States Court of Veterans Appeals under Article I of the United States Constitution. The
Court is empowered to review decisions of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals and may affirm, modify, revise, or remand a
decision of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals as it deems appropriate. The type of review performed by the Court is similar
to that which is performed in Article III courts under the
Administrative Procedure Act, title 5 U.S.C. §§ 551 et seq.
In actions before it, the Court has the authority to decide
all relevant questions of law, to interpret constitutional, statutory, and regulatory provisions, and to determine the meaning
or applicability of the terms of an action by the Secretary
of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Court, being created by an act of Congress, may issue all writs necessary
or appropriate in aid of its jurisdiction, 28 U.S.C. § 1651.
The Court is empowered to: compel actions of the Secretary
that are found to have been unlawfully withheld or unreasonably delayed; and set aside decisions, findings, conclusions,
rules, and regulations issued or adopted by the Secretary,
the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, or the Chairman of the Board
that are found to be arbitrary or capricious. The Court may
also set aside decisions which are abuse of discretion or otherwise not in accordance with the law, contrary to constitutional
right, in excess of statutory jurisdiction or authority, or without observance of the procedures required by law. In cases
involving benefits under the laws administered by the Department, the Court may hold unlawful or set aside findings
of material facts if the findings are clearly erroneous.
The Court’s principal office location is Washington, D.C.;
however, it is a national court, empowered to sit anywhere
in the United States.
Practice Registration Fees.—This fund is established under
38 U.S.C. § 7285. The fund, which receives no appropriations,
will be used by the U.S. Court of Veterans Appeals to employ
independent counsel to pursue disciplinary matters involving
practitioners and to defray costs for the implementation of
the standards of practice before the Court.

Under the National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997 the Federal Government is
required to finance the District of Columbia Courts beginning
in 1998. This Federal payment to the District of Columbia
Courts funds the operations of the District of Columbia Court
of Appeals, Superior Court and the Court System. Beginning
in 1999, the Federal Government will also provide funds for
capital improvements.
By law, the annual budget includes estimates of the expenditures for the operations of the District of Columbia Courts
prepared by the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration
in the District of Columbia and the President’s recommendation for funding District Courts operations. The President’s
recommended level of $142 million includes: $121 million for
District of Columbia Court of Appeals, Superior Court of the
District of Columbia and the District of Columbia Court System operations; and, $21 million for capital improvements
for District courthouse facilities. Under a separate transmittal
to Congress, the District Courts are requesting $148 million,
$133 million for operations and $15 million for capital improvements.

The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government
Improvement Act of 1997 requires that the adult felon population of the District of Columbia be transferred to the Federal Prison System over the next several years. To assist
in this transition, the Act established a Corrections Trustee
to provide financial oversight of, and assistance to, the District of Columbia Department of Corrections during this period. The Corrections Trustee also provides funding to the
D.C. Department of Corrections associated with the prisoner
population that will eventually be transferred to the Federal
Prison System. Of the current D.C. adult felon population
(7,200 inmates), 2,000 inmates will be transferred to private
facilities contracted for by the Federal Prison System by December 31, 1999. The remaining inmates will be transferred
to the Federal Prison System when the Lorton, Virginia, Correctional Complex is closed, or by December 31, 2003, whichever is earlier. It is estimated that at least 800 District inmates will already have been transferred to the Federal Prison System by the end of 1998.
In 1999, the Corrections Trustee will continue to work with
the D.C. Department of Corrections on the closing of Lorton
initiative now in progress. Of the seven prison facilities located at the Lorton site, three will have been closed by the
end of 1999. The Corrections Trustee will also work with
the D.C. Department of Corrections to restructure employee
pay scales to stabilize the workforce by discouraging employee
separations. The Trustee will also work with the Department
to establish a system of internal controls and audits to improve the quality and accountability of operations.

The District of Columbia Management Reform Act of 1997
(Title XI of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997) requires the
Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority to work with the District government to develop and implement management reform plans for nine District agencies
and four government-wide functions. Congress provided a onetime appropriation of $8 million in 1998 to cover costs associated with hiring consultants to develop the reform plans.

FEDERAL PAYMENT FOR MEDICARE COORDINATED CARE
DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government
Improvement Act of 1997 eliminated the annual Federal payment to the District of Columbia. The annual payment was
used to partially offset the costs associated with the Federal
government assuming financial and management responsibility for certain District government functions, including the
courts and key elements of the criminal justice system and
the unfunded pension liability under the Revitalization Act.
The former annual payment compensated the District for
the net costs imposed by the presence of the Federal government in Washington, D.C. A $719 million Federal payment
was provided in 1997, of which $660 was provided for the
payment to the general fund of the District of Columbia.

The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government
Improvement Act of 1997 establishes the Federal Supplemental District of Columbia Pension Fund to pay retirement
benefits for District of Columbia law enforcement officers,
firefighters and teachers after the District of Columbia Federal Pension Liability Trust Fund has been depleted. This
fund consists of amounts deposited into the fund, any amount
appropriated to the fund, and any income earned on the investment of the assets of the fund. At the end of each fiscal
year, beginning in FY 1998, the Secretary will pay into this
fund from the General Fund of the Treasury an annual
amount to amortize the unfunded liability over 30 years and
the covered administrative expenses for the year. Conservative estimates were used to calculate earned interest
amounts.

Subtitle A of the National Capital Revitalization and SelfGovernment Improvement Act of 1997 requires the Federal
Government to make benefit payments associated with the
pension plans for law enforcement officers, firefighters, and
teachers of the District of Columbia. This District of Columbia
Federal Pension Liability Trust Fund is established and will
consist of accumulated pension assets transferred from the
District Retirement Fund to fund benefit payments and any
necessary expenses to administer the Fund. The Secretary
of the Treasury is required to select a Trustee to administer
the Trust Fund. Assets will not be transferred from the District Retirement Fund until a Trustee has been selected and
directed to carry out its duties and responsibilities.

Temporary advances are made by the U.S. Treasury to
the District of Columbia to meet short-term cash requirements, resulting from variations in the rate of disbursements
and tax collections during the year (Sec. 47–3401, D.C. Code,
as amended). Advances to the District for 1995 through 1997
are required to be repaid with the Federal payment for the
following fiscal year. Advances made thereafter are to be repaid using general fund revenues from the District of Columbia. The schedule above details the status of these advances
as of September 30, 1997.

GENERAL PROVISIONS

to 5 U.S.C. 3109, shall be limited to those contracts where such
expenditures are a matter of public record and available for public
inspection, except where otherwise provided under existing law, or
under existing Executive order issued pursuant to existing law.
SEC. 102. Except as otherwise provided in this Act, all vouchers
covering expenditures of appropriations contained in this Act shall

Enforcement.—This activity resolves charges of employment
discrimination filed with the Commission and pursues litigation to enforce compliance with Title VII, the Equal Pay Act,
the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans
with Disabilities Act, and the Civil Rights Act of 1991. During
1999, programs will continue to focus on improving the effectiveness of the administrative process and litigation program.
This includes: using mediation in private sector enforcement
activities; using charge prioritization and National Enforcement and Local Enforcement Plan priorities; and improving
the processing of Federal-sector EEO complaints, appeal actions and affirmative employment procedures. The agency will
continue to encourage and facilitate voluntary compliance
with equal employment opportunity laws in the private and
public sectors and increase the public’s knowledge about individual rights under equal employment opportunity laws. The
1999 request includes funding to enhance the agency’s information resource management system, to continue the use of
alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and to expand its
outreach and technical assistance efforts. Together with additional staff, these initiatives will provide the tools needed
to further combat excessive caseloads and prevent discrimination from occurring in the first place.
State and local grants.—This activity provides funds to
State and local fair employment practice agencies to assist
in the resolution of employment discrimination complaints.
For 1999, the agency will continue working with State and
Local Fair Employment Practices Agencies and Tribal Employment Rights Organizations to improve employment discrimination charge processing and other approaches for addressing workplace discrimination.

under more than one statute.

Executive direction and program support.—This activity provides for the direction and coordination of the Commission’s
programs. It also provides administrative and management
support services for the agency. For 1999, the agency will

The purpose of the Export-Import Bank (Eximbank) is to
aid in the financing and promotion of U.S. exports. To accomplish its objectives, the bank’s authority and resources are
used to: assume commercial and political risks that exporters
or private institutions are unwilling or unable to undertake;
overcome maturity and other limitations in private sector export financing; assist U.S. exporters to meet officially sponsored foreign export credit competition; and, provide leadership and guidance in export financing to the U.S. exporting
and banking communities and to foreign borrowers. The bank
provides its export credit support through direct loan, loan
guarantee and insurance programs. The bank is actively assisting small- and medium-sized businesses.
The bank’s request for administrative expenses for 1999
is $51.9 million, of which $2 million will be used specifically
to cover costs associated with the renovation of the GSAowned building occupied by the bank.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for Eximbank, the subsidy costs associated with direct loans and direct grants obligated, and loan
guarantees and insurance committed in 1992 and beyond,
as well as administrative expenses. The subsidy amounts are
estimated on a present value basis; administrative expenses
are estimated on a cash basis.

Operating results and financial condition.—The bank is a
wholly owned Government corporation. Capital stock of $1
billion was purchased by the U.S. Treasury, and the bank
is authorized to borrow up to $6 billion from the Treasury.
The bank pays interest on such borrowings.
The bank has a reserve for possible credit losses, which
provides for the risk of loss inherent in the lending process.
This reserve is a general reserve, available to absorb credit
losses related to the total loan portfolio. The reserve is increased by provisions charged to expenses and decreased by
charge-offs, net of recoveries.
The provision for possible credit losses is based on the
bank’s evaluation of the adequacy of the reserve, taking into
consideration a variety of factors, including repayment status
of loans, future risk factors, the relationship of the reserve
to the portfolio, and worldwide economic conditions. Providing
for such possible losses does not imply that any loans will
be written off. It simply recognizes the fact that the prospects
for collection of some of the bank’s loans are impaired. It
does not provide for losses on a country-by-country basis and
is intended only to provide an overall revaluation of the loan
portfolio.
The bank’s net operating income was $391 million in 1997.
Total Government equity in the corporation was $2,830 million on September 30, 1997.

The Farm Credit Administration (FCA) is an independent
Federal agency that examines and regulates the Farm Credit
System (System) for safety and soundness. The System is
a cooperative agricultural credit system of farm credit banks
and associations that lends to farmers, ranchers, and their
cooperatives. Beginning in 1990, the FCA also performs annual examinations of the Federal Agricultural Mortgage Corporation. In addition, FCA annually examines The National
Consumer Cooperative Bank and its affiliate, The NCCB Development Corporation.
As of October 1, 1997, the System is comprised of six Farm
Credit Banks, one Agricultural Credit Bank, one bank for
cooperatives, 206 associations, five service corporations, and
three related institutions, including the Federal Agricultural
Mortgage Corporation. The Agricultural Credit Bank and
bank for cooperatives lend to eligible cooperative borrowers
nationwide.
Assessments based upon estimated administrative expenses
are collected from institutions in the System and the Federal
Agricultural Mortgage Corporation and are available for administrative expenses. Obligations are incurred within fiscal
year budgets approved by the Farm Credit Administration
Board.

The Farm Credit System Financial Assistance Corporation
(FAC) was created by the Agricultural Credit Act of 1987
to provide funds to System institutions experiencing financial
difficulties. Authority for FAC to issue obligations and provide
assistance expired in 1992, after $1.26 billion in FAC debt
had been issued. Proceeds of FAC debt issuances were paid
into, and amounts for assistance and other expenses were
paid from, the FAC Assistance Fund. The FAC was re-classified from a Government-sponsored enterprise to a federal entity beginning in 1993, when most of the private capital in
FAC, provided by the System, was rebated from the FAC
Trust Fund pursuant to the Reconciliation and Agriculture
Appropriations Acts of 1989.
Except for debt issued for Capital Preservation cash-outs,
the U.S. Treasury pays all the interest on 15-year,
uncollateralized FAC obligations in the first five years, and
up to half the interest in the second five years. The system
is responsible for a greater share of the interest payment
in the second five years if retained earnings exceed five percent of assets. FAC estimates that the system will pay 91
percent of the 1997 expense, 93 percent of the 1998 expense,
and 97 percent of the 1999 expense. The System is required
to eventually reimburse Treasury for these payments and will
redeem FAC debt upon maturity or call. Under the terms
of the Act, no interest payments will be made by Treasury
after the year 2000.
The FAC Trust Fund holds and rebates the private capital
contributed by the System. Remaining amounts in the Trust
Fund are available to cover System defaults on FAC principal
and interest payments.

The Farm Credit System Insurance Corporation (Corporation) was established to ensure the timely payment of principal and interest on System debt obligations purchased by
investors. The Corporation is managed by a three member
Board of Directors that consists of the same members as
the Farm Credit Administration Board of Directors. The Corporation collects insurance premiums from insured System
banks based on the level of accruing and non-accruing loans
outstanding in each bank and its affiliated associations’ loan
portfolio. The Corporation derives its revenues from these
yearly premiums and from the investment income earned on
its investment portfolio. Congress established a secure base
amount of 2 percent of outstanding System obligations, or
such other amounts determined by its Board of Directors to
be actuarially sound to maintain the Insurance Fund. The
Corporation expects to achieve the secure base amount during
1998, at which time premium collections will be discontinued.
The Insurance Fund is available for payment on System
obligations if an insured System bank defaults on its primary
liability. The Insurance Fund is also available to ensure the
timely retirement of certain eligible borrower stock, pay the
operating costs of the Corporation and satisfy defaults by
system institutions on obligations issued by the FAC after
amounts in the FAC Trust Fund are exhausted. The Corporation can exercise its authority to make loans, purchase System bank assets or obligations, provide other financial assistance and otherwise act to reduce its exposure to losses.
The Corporation has the authority to make refunds of excess Insurance Fund balances. No refunds are anticipated
before 2005.

*Includes both inter- and intra-state funds.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 provides for a major
restructuring of the Nation’s communications laws, promotes
universal service and open access to information networks,
and provides for flexible government regulations. Under the
Act, telecommunications carriers that provide interstate telecommunications services are required to contribute funds, as
prescribed by the FCC, to the preservation and advancement
of universal service. The contributions are used to provide
services eligible for universal service support as prescribed
by the FCC. Telecommunications carriers receive a credit towards their contribution by providing discount service to
schools, libraries, and health care providers. Support will also
be provided to carriers offering services in high cost areas
of the United States and to carriers offering services to low
income consumers.

This program provides for direct loans for the purpose of
spectrum licenses at the Federal Communications Commission’s auctions. The licenses are being purchased on an installment basis, which constitutes an extension of credit. The
first year of activity for this program was 1996.
As required by the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990,
this account records, for this program, the subsidy costs associated with the direct loans obligated in 1992 and beyond
(including modifications of direct loans or loan guarantees
that resulted from obligations or commitments in any year),
as well as administrative expenses of this program. The subsidy amounts are estimated on a present value basis; the
administrative expenses are estimated on a cash basis.

The Administration is proposing legislation to repeal provisions of the Balanced Budget Agreement of 1997 which required spectrum auctions to be conducted in 2002. This proposal will facilitate the efficient deployment of the spectrum
by the Federal Communications Commission which will maximize market value.

FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE
CORPORATION
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC or Corporation) was created by the Banking Act of 1933 to provide
protection for bank depositors and to foster sound banking
practices. The Financial Institutions Reform Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 established the Bank Insurance Fund
(BIF), the Savings Association Insurance Fund (SAIF), and
the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation (FSLIC)
Resolution Fund (FRF). The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 generally requires the Cor-

The BIF, a public enterprise revolving fund, derives its
income principally from insurance assessments paid by insured banks. The fund represents the accumulated net income
of the BIF and is reserved for the protection of depositors
in insured banks and for the payment of administrative and
insurance expenses. As of September 1997, BIF’s fund balance
totaled $28 billion, excluding reserves for future failed bank
resolutions. The net worth of the BIF reached 1.25 percent
of total insured deposits in May 1995.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement
Act of 1991 authorizes the FDIC to borrow up to $30 billion
from the Treasury to cover deposit insurance losses and provide additional loans from the Federal Financing Bank for
working capital purposes. The BIF is not expected to borrow
any of the $30 billion line of credit from the Treasury or
from the Federal Financing Bank to finance working capital
needs.

The Administration supports the transfer of health coverage
for retirees and active employees within five years of retirement of the FDIC and the Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve, who are now covered by in-house health care plans,
to the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP)
administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
The current plans are becoming more expensive because of
the small size and age of the insured group, and FEHBP
coverage would be more cost effective. This proposal will reduce the FDIC’s administrative costs, thereby increasing the
Bank Insurance Fund balance.

The Administration is proposing that all bank holding companies and FDIC-insured banks be required to pay fees to
the appropriate Federal banking agency in amounts sufficient
to defray the agency’s cost of supervising such institutions.
In establishing fees for State banks, the appropriate Federal
banking agency shall take into account the extent to which

FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION—Continued

OTHER INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

State bank supervision reduces the need for Federal supervision. Fees would not apply to State banks with assets of
less than $100 million. Currently, some financial institutions
are not required to pay Federal fees for examinations. This
proposal is intended to reduce the inequity among FDICinsured banks.

SAVINGS ASSOCIATION INSURANCE FUND

The SAIF insures depository institutions formerly insured
by the FSLIC. In July 1995, SAIF assumed responsibility
for resolving failed thrifts from the Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC).
The Deposit Insurance Funds Act of 1996 imposed a special
assessment to bring SAIF’s reserves up to 1.25 percent of
insured deposits. It also provides for the merger of BIF and
SAIF on January 1, 1999, provided that no insured depository
institution is a savings association on that date.

The FRF is the successor to FSLIC assets and liabilities
from thrift resolutions prior to August 1989. Beginning in
August 1989, the RTC assumed responsibility for the FSLIC’s
unresolved cases. On December 31, 1995, the RTC was terminated and its assets and liabilities were transferred to FRF.
Funds for FRF operations have come from: income earned
on its assets; liquidation proceeds from receiverships; the proceeds of the sale of bonds by the Financing Corporation; and,
a portion of insurance premiums paid by SAIF members prior
to 1993. The Act authorizes appropriations to make up for
any shortfall. The FRF will terminate upon the disposition
of all its assets, and any net proceeds will be paid to the
Treasury. Net proceeds from the former RTC will be paid
to the Resolution Funding Corporation.

FDIC’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) is an independent
unit within the Corporation that conducts audits and investigations of corporate activities and assists the Corporation
in preventing and detecting fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement. The OIG was established by the FDIC Board
of Directors pursuant to the Inspector General Act amendments of 1988 (Public Law 100–504). The Resolution Trust
Corporation Completion Act, enacted December 17, 1993, provided that the FDIC Inspector General be appointed by the
President and confirmed by the Senate. The Completion Act
thus added FDIC to the establishments whose OIG’s have
separate appropriation accounts under Section 1105(a) of Title
31, United States Code. The OIG’s first appropriation was
for its fiscal year 1998 expenses. The OIG’s appropriations

The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (Public Law 101–73, August 9, 1989) established the Appraisal Subcommittee of the Federal Financial
Institutions Examination Council. Subsequent legislation
(Public Law 101–235) authorized the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development to designate a
member of the Appraisal Subcommittee.
The Subcommittee is charged with ensuring that real estate
appraisals used in federally-related transactions are performed in accordance with uniform standards by appraisers
certified and licensed by the States. Its responsibilities include: (1) monitoring the requirements established by the
States for the certification and licensing of appraisers; (2)
monitoring the requirements established by the Federal financial institutions’ regulatory agencies regarding appraisal
standards; (3) monitoring and reviewing the practices, procedures, activities, and organization of the Appraisal Foundation; and, (4) maintaining a national registry of licensed and
certified appraisers.
Subcommittee activities, including grants awarded to the
Appraisal Foundation, were initially funded from a one-time
appropriation of $5 million. The Subcommittee is now operating on fee income from state-licensed and certified real estate
appraisers in the national registry. The Economic Growth
and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 requires
full repayment of the $5 million by the end of 1998. The
Treasury has already been repaid $4.5 million.

In 1997, the FLRA conducted over 340 programs involving
over 10,000 employees, union representatives, arbitrators, and
other practitioners.
Components.—The FLRA is composed of the Authority, the
Office of the General Counsel, and the Federal Service Impasses Panel.
Authority.—The Authority adjudicates labor-management
disputes in the Federal sector including: appeals on negotiability issues; exceptions to arbitration awards; appropriate
units for the purposes of exclusive recognition; eligibility of
labor organizations for national consultation rights; and unfair labor practice complaints.
Within the Authority, administrative law judges hold hearings on unfair labor practice complaints, issue reports, and
make recommendations to the Authority to allow timely settlement of disputes arising between agencies and unions. The
Authority also provides all components with administrative
services.
The Office of the Inspector General is responsible for conducting and supervising audits and investigations related to
the functions of the FLRA, pursuant to the provisions of the
Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended in 1988.

The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA): (1) serves
as a neutral party in the settlement of disputes that arise
between unions, employees, and agencies on matters outlined
in the Federal Service Labor Management Relations Statute;
(2) decides major policy issues; (3) prescribes regulations; and
(4) disseminates information appropriate to the needs of agencies, labor organizations, and the public. Establishment of
the FLRA gives full recognition to the role of the Federal
Government as an employer.
In addition, the FLRA is engaged in training and facilitation in labor-management partnerships and in resolving disputes in its unified Collaboration and Alternative Dispute
Resolution Program. Training and facilitation workload is reflected in the following manner: the FLRA promotes labormanagement cooperation by providing training and assistance
to labor organizations and agencies on resolving disputes; facilitates the creation of partnerships as called for in Executive
Order 12871; and trains the parties on rights and responsibilities under the Federal Labor Relations Management Statute.

The Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS or
the Service) provides assistance to parties in labor disputes
in industries affecting commerce through conciliation and mediation.
Dispute mediation.—The Service assists labor and management in the mediation and prevention of disputes, other than
those involving rail and air transportation, whenever such
disputes threaten to cause a substantial interruption of interstate commerce or a major impairment to the national defense. The Service also makes mediation and conciliation services available to Federal agencies and organizations representing Federal employees in the resolution of negotiation
disputes. The Service provides mandatory mediation and,
where necessary, impartial boards of inquiry to assist in resolving labor disputes involving private nonprofit health care
institutions. The workload shown below includes assignments
closed in both the private and public sectors.

The Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board is responsible for managing the Thrift Savings Fund (Fund). The Fund
is a special tax-deferred savings fund established by the Federal Employees’ Retirement System Act of 1986. Due to the
fiduciary nature of the Fund, it is not included in the totals
of the Federal budget. Information on the financial status
and activities of the Fund follows this account.
Program administration for the Fund is financed from the
Fund. Program expenses are derived first from Fund forfeitures of agency one percent automatic contributions for employees who separate from the Federal government prior to
vesting and then from earnings on all participant and agency
contributions to the Fund.

INFORMATION SCHEDULES

FOR THE

THRIFT SAVINGS FUND

The Fund is composed of individual accounts maintained
by the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board on behalf
of the individual Federal employee participants in the Fund.
All Federal employees are eligible to contribute to the Fund.
However, only those employees covered by the Federal Employees’ Retirement System have their contributions matched
by employing agencies in accordance with the formulas prescribed by law. Employees are entitled to select how contributions are distributed among three investment funds: a U.S.
Government securities investment fund; a common stock
index investment fund; and, a fixed income index investment
fund.
Employee participation in the Fund is entirely voluntary,
so actual results could vary significantly from these estimates.
The estimated status of the three separate funds is shown

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC or Commission) is
charged by law with ensuring that competition in the marketplace is vigorous, free, and fair. This is accomplished by eliminating threats to fair and honest competition from all sources,
both public and private.
Maintaining competition.—The Commission’s efforts are
aimed at fostering and preserving our competitive system
with the goal of maximizing consumer welfare. In addition
to enforcing the antitrust laws against private sector restraints on competition, the Commission also scrutinizes regulatory policies that unduly restrain competition, and encourages policymakers to harness the benefits of competition when
in the development of such policies.
Consumer protection.—The Commission is charged with
eliminating unfair or deceptive acts or practices affecting commerce. The goal of the consumer protection mission is to
improve market performance so that consumers can make
informed choices when exercising their purchasing power. To
accomplish this goal, the Commission will: remove harmful
private and public restrictions on market performance; encourage business to provide consumers with accurate and useful information; and, reinforce market forces that enhance
consumer welfare.
The President’s 1999 request will fund a total of 979 FTE.
The program level for the Commission would increase from
$106.5 million in 1998 to $112.9 million in 1999, allowing
the Commission to continue to pursue its missions.
The programs administered by the FTC are funded by appropriated funds and fees assessed for premerger notification
filings under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act, as required by section
605 of Public Law 101–162, as amended. The 1999 requested
level includes $101.2 million appropriated from the General
Fund and $11.7 million derived from estimated 1998 carryover fee balances. During 1999, the FTC anticipates collecting
$86.6 million in pre-merger filing fees, which will be available
for obligation starting October 1, 1999.

The U.S. International Trade Commission is an independent agency created by an act of Congress. The sources of
the Commission’s principal powers and duties are the Tariff
Act of 1930; the Trade Act of 1974; the Agricultural Adjustment Act; the Trade and Tariff Act of 1984; the Omnibus
Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988; the North American
Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act; and the Uruguay
Round Agreements Act.
The Commission investigates and makes findings concerning inter alia, whether: (1) increased imports are a substantial
cause of serious injury to an industry; (2) a U.S. industry
is being materially injured, or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of such an industry is being materially retarded, by reason of imported goods that are subsidized
or are being sold at less than fair value; (3) there are unfair
import practices in import trade; and (4) imports of agricultural products are materially interfering with certain programs of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The Commission advises the President as to the probable
economic effect on domestic industry and consumers of modification of duties and other barriers to trade which may be
considered for inclusion in any proposed trade agreement with
foreign countries. Further, the Commission, at the request
of the President, the Ways and Means Committee of the
House of Representatives, the Finance Committee of the Senate, or on the Commission’s own motion, undertakes comprehensive studies and provides reports on issues relating
to international trade and economic policy matters, and upon
request provides other information and advice to the Congress
and President on tariff and trade matters.
The Commission, in cooperation with the Secretary of the
Treasury and the Secretary of Commerce, establishes for sta-

by the Secretary of the Treasury in U.S. Treasury securities,
and the interest earned on these funds is available for carrying out the activities of the foundation. Funds raised from
private sources and the surcharges from commemorative coin
sales are also placed in the trust fund.
The foundation is authorized to award graduate fellowships
of up to $24,000 to high school teachers of American history,
American government, and social studies. College seniors and
recent college graduates who want to become secondary school
teachers of these subjects are also eligible.
Fellowship awards.—This activity is comprised of fellowship
awards to cover educational expenses. It also supports the
foundation’s annual Summer Institute on the U.S. Constitution, which all current fellows are required to attend. The
Institute is an intensive educational experience that will ensure that all fellows know the history of the framing, ratification, and implementation of the U.S. Constitution and the
Bill of Rights. The foundation awarded 61 fellowships in 1997
and plans to award 60 in both 1998 and 1999.
Program administration.—This activity covers the costs of
planning, fund-raising, and the operation of the fellowship
program.

The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board
was established to oversee an effort of enormous scope within
a four year period. The Board is charged with locating and
securing all records which relate to the assassination of President Kennedy. These records include those of at least fifteen
Federal agencies, previous official investigations, the Presidential libraries, and many smaller governmental and private
repositories throughout the country.
The purpose of the Board is to ensure the efficient, timely
and full disclosure of these records to the American public.
This effort is seen as perhaps the last opportunity to clear
up the many lingering doubts and questions surrounding the
assassination of President Kennedy.
1998 is the Board’s fourth and final year, and it will issue
a final report upon its termination.

MERIT SYSTEMS PROTECTION BOARD
Federal Funds

The mission of the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)
is to assist Federal agencies in running a merit-based civil
service system. The MSPB accomplishes its mission on a caseby-case basis through hearing and deciding employee appeals,
and on a systematic basis by reviewing significant actions
and regulations of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM)
and conducting studies of the civil service and other merit
systems. The intended results (outcomes) of MSPB’s efforts
are to assure that (1) personnel actions taken against employees are processed within the law, and (2) actions taken by
OPM and other agencies support and enhance Federal merit
principles.

Proposed legislation amending the Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National Environmental and Native
American Public Policy Act of 1992 would establish the U.S.
Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution. The Institute
is designed to conduct environmental conflict resolution and
training, and will provide mainly Federal agencies with assessment, mediation, or other related services in connection
with a dispute or conflict related to the environment, public
lands, or natural resources. Under the proposal, a new Environmental Dispute Resolution Fund would be established to
collect fees from contracting parties to pay for environmental
dispute resolution cases. The budget proposes $3 million to
capitalize this new fund and $1 million for annual operating
costs for transmittal after enactment of needed authorizing
legislation.

The National Archives and Records Administration provides
for basic operations dealing with management of the Government’s archives and records, operation of Presidential Libraries, and for the review for declassification of classified security
information.
Records services.—This activity provides for selecting, preserving, describing, and making available to the general public, scholars, and Federal agencies the permanently valuable
historical records of the Federal Government; the historical
materials and Presidential records in Presidential Libraries;
for preparing related publications and exhibit programs; and
for conducting the appraisal of all Federal records. Significant
savings result from use of low cost records storage and the
efficient and timely disposal of non-permanent records.
Through the records declassification program, historically
valuable information in the records of the Federal Government and in donated historical materials are made available
to the public by declassifying as much information as possible
without endangering the national security.
This activity also provides oversight for the information
security program established by Executive Order 12958 and
reports annually to the President on the status of that program. It is also responsible for policy oversight for the National Industrial Security Program established under Executive Order 12829.
Archives related services.—This activity provides for the
publication of the Federal Register the Code of Federal Regulations, the U.S. Statutes-at-Large, and Presidential documents, and for a program to improve the quality of regulations and the public’s access to them. This activity also in-

cludes the administration and reference services portion for
the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.
This Commission makes grants nationwide to preserve and
publish records that document American history.
Archives II Facility.—Provides for construction and related
services of the new archival facility which was opened to
the public in 1993. Costs of construction are financed by
$301,702 thousand of federally guaranteed debt issued in
1989. Since 1994 and continuing in 1999, the Archives seeks
appropriations for the annual payments for interest and redemption of debt to be made under the contract for construction and related services.

The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) is the
central planning agency for the Federal government in the
National Capital Region. It develops long-range plans and
conducts project reviews in order to enhance the National
Capital’s historical, cultural and natural resources. During
1999, NCPC will begin its Monuments, Memorials, and Museums Study that, by identifying potential sites for new commemorative works and public buildings, will preserve the
Mall’s open space and encourage economic development in
all quadrants of Washington. NCPC will also undertake the
detailed planning work associated with its ‘‘Extending the
Legacy’’ plan, including implementation of key First Initiatives projects. Expansion of the Washington Geographic Information System (WGIS) will focus on assessing Federal GIS
needs and opportunities for partnering with the private sector
in the National Capital region, and on developing revenuegenerating products.

The insurance fund is used to carry out a program of insurance for member accounts in Federal credit unions and Statechartered credit unions which apply and qualify for insurance,
authorized by Public Law 91–468, enacted October 19, 1970.
Budget program.—The activities consist of: (a) providing
member account insurance, (b) formulating standards and requirements for insured credit unions, and (c) providing for
liquidation or other disposition of the assets and liabilities
of solvent and insolvent insured credit unions. The fund also
reimburses the operating fund for its share of the Agency’s
administrative costs. The reimbursement percentage, which
is reviewed and adjusted periodically, is currently at 50 percent.
The extent of the program is estimated as follows:

It is estimated that approximately 4,200 State-chartered
credit unions will be enrolled in the program by the end
of 1998.
Financing.—For insurance year 1998 the credit union’s required annual insurance premium of one-twelfth of 1 percent
of its total member share accounts has been waived. As a
result of Public Law 98–369 (July 18, 1984), each insured
credit union is also required to deposit and maintain in the
insurance fund 1 percent of its member share accounts. The
fund is structured to be entirely self supporting through the
monies paid by member credit unions. The monies received
plus the income generated from their investment are expected
to cover all administrative and financial costs, as well as
increase the fund balance proportionate to insured share
growth. In fiscal year 1997 the income generated from the
1 percent deposit eliminated the need to assess the annual
premium. In addition, the fund paid a $105 million dividend
to federally insured credit unions in fiscal year 1998 due
to an excess in the 1.3 percent reserve requirement. The
fund has $100 million in borrowing authority from the Treasury for use in unforeseen emergencies.
Operating results.—Anticipated net income of $170 million
will be retained in the fund, raising the balance for unforeseen emergencies to $4 billion by the end of 1999.

The National Credit Union Central Liquidity Facility was
established under Public Law 95–630. It began operations
on October 1, 1979. The Central Liquidity Facility provides
loans to member credit unions for seasonal and emergency
needs.
The two primary sources of funds for the Facility are stock
subscriptions from credit unions and borrowings from the
Federal Financing Bank. Credit unions, which choose to become members of the Facility, are required to purchase stock
equal to one-half of 1 percent of their assets. One-half of
the subscription in stock is forwarded to the Facility and
deposited in the fund. The remaining half of the subscription
remains on call in the credit union in investments as approved by the NCUA Board.

Field investigation.—Charges of unfair labor practices and
petitions for elections to resolve representation disputes are
investigated by regional office personnel. Ninety percent of
the unfair labor practice cases and 85 percent of the representation cases are closed by settlement, dismissal, or withdrawal. The remainder are prepared for public hearing. The
agency strives to maximize the voluntary settlement of all
cases and to avoid litigation.
Administrative law judge hearing.—Administrative law
judges conduct public hearings in unfair labor practice cases.
Their findings and recommendations are set forth in their
decisions.
Board adjudication.—In an unfair labor practice case a
judge’s decision becomes a Board order if no exceptions are
filed. About 30 percent of these decisions become automatic
Board orders or are complied with voluntarily. The remainder
with exceptions filed require contested Board decision. In rep-

Securing compliance with Board orders.—If the parties do
not voluntarily comply with the Board’s order involving unfair
labor practices, the Board must request that the appellate
courts enforce its decisions.

Emergency disputes.—When the parties fail to resolve their
disputes through mediation, they are urged to submit their
differences to arbitration. If neither mediation nor voluntary
arbitration is successful, the President, when notified of disputes which threaten to seriously interrupt service, may appoint emergency boards to investigate and report on the disputes under section 160 of the Railway Labor Act (RLA).
Such reports usually serve as a basis for resolving the disputes.
The Northeast Rail Service Act of 1981 amended the Railway Labor Act by adding a new emergency dispute procedure
covering disputes between a publicly funded and operated
commuter carrier and its employees. The 1981 Act requires
the Board to appoint the public members of factfinding panels
on Conrail.

Arbitration under sections 3 and 7 of the RLA.—Railroad
employee grievances resulting from disputes over the interpretation or application of collective bargaining contracts may
be brought for settlement to the National Railroad Adjustment Board (NRAB). The divisions of the Board are composed
of an equal number of carrier and union representatives compensated by the party or parties they represent. Public Law
89–456 provides for the adjustment of disputes involving
grievances resulting from interpretation or application of bargaining agreements in the railroad industry otherwise referable to the NRAB.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), as an
independent nonregulatory agency, is charged with promoting
transportation safety through the investigation of accidents,
the conduct of special studies, the development of recommendations to prevent accidents, the evaluation of the effectiveness of other Government agencies in preventing transportation accidents, and the review of appeals of adverse certificate and civil penalty actions taken by the Administrators
of agencies of the Department of Transportation involving
airman and seaman certificates and licenses.
In 1999, the Administration requests a total funding level
of $53.2 million for NTSB Salaries and Expenses, including
$6 million to be derived from a proposed commercial aviation
accident investigation fee. This funding level represents a
5.3 percent increase above the 1998 enacted level of $48.4
million, excluding one-time costs associated with TWA 800,
and will allow the NTSB to fulfill its role in improving safety
on the Nation’s transportation system.
The request provides additional resources to complete the
investigation of TWA 800 in the first quarter of 1999.

The major activities of the Corporation include: establishing
neighborhood partnership programs known as NeighborWorks Organizations (NWOs); assisting in the expansion of
NeighborWorks organizations to additional neighborhoods;
providing training and technical assistance; identifying, evaluating, supporting and replicating successful neighborhood
preservation projects that show promise for reversing neighborhood decline; promoting a national secondary market and
other financing mechanisms for NWOs; and granting lending
and equity capital to promote homeownership and other affordable housing.
The Corporation will undertake a new homeownership initiative which will extend the benefits of homeownership to
10,000 working households which are not currently served
through conventional sources.
The Corporation receives both Federal and non-Federal
funding to finance its program activities. For FY 1999, a
program level of $90,000,000 is requested. The following tables reflect the total program activity of the Corporation and
include all sources of financing, both Federal and non-Federal.
BUDGET ACTIVITY

The National Transportation Safety Board is mandated by
Congress to investigate all catastrophic transportation accidents and, therefore, has no control over the frequency of
costly accident investigations. The emergency fund provides

Nuclear Reactor Safety.—A major part of the NRC’s mission
is to ensure that its licensees design, construct, and operate
civilian reactor facilities safely. The Atomic Energy Act and
the Energy Reorganization Act provide the foundation for regulating the Nation’s commercial nuclear power industry. Reactor safety encompasses all NRC efforts to ensure that civilian
nuclear reactor facilities are operated in a manner that provides adequate protection of public health and safety. These
efforts include reactor licensing, inspection, performance assessment, identification and resolution of safety issues, reactor regulatory research, regulation development, independent
assessment of reactor operational events and experience, investigations of alleged wrongdoing by licensees, applicants,
contractors, or vendors, and imposition of enforcement sanctions for violations of NRC requirements.
Nuclear Materials Safety.—Nuclear materials safety encompasses all NRC efforts to ensure that NRC-regulation aspects
of nuclear fuel cycle facilities and nuclear materials activities
are handled in a manner that provides adequate protection
of public health and safety. These efforts include licensing,
inspection, and related regulatory activities for fuel cycle facilities and nuclear materials users, and uranium recovery.
This program provides regulatory assistance to the Department of Energy, including activities related to the anticipated
commercial vitrification of high-level waste in Hanford tanks,
the evaluation of tritium production using commercial reactors, and the external regulation pilot program.
Nuclear Waste Safety.—Nuclear waste safety encompasses
the NRC’s high-level waste regulatory activities associated
with high-level waste disposal at Yucca Mountain as mandated by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, the Nuclear Waste
Policy Amendments Act and the Energy Policy Act. This program also encompasses all NRC low-level radioactive waste
activities associated with the disposal of waste in accordance
with the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act.
Common Defense and Security and International Involvement.—Common Defense and Security and International Involvement encompasses NRC international activities, some of
which support the agency’s domestic mission and many of
which support broader U.S. national interests. These activities include international policy formulation, export-import licensing of nuclear materials and equipment, treaty implementation, international information exchange activities, and
international safety and safeguards assistance. NRC’s domestic safeguards responsibility involves the control of and accounting for nuclear materials, the protection of nuclear materials to prevent theft or diversion, and contingency plans for
responding to threatening situations.
Protecting the Environment.—Protecting the environment
encompasses the NRC’s activities related to protecting the
environment from potential hazards associated with the civilian use of source, byproduct, and special nuclear materials
and involves actions to mitigate environmental impacts, both
during the conduct of licensed activities and afterward. These
NRC activities ensure that potential environmental impacts
of such licensed activities are assessed and overseen, prior
and during licensing, consistent with the requirements of the
National Environmental Policy Act as implemented by applicable NRC regulations. NRC regulatory and oversight activities also encompass decommissioning, which involves safely
removing a facility from service and reducing residual radiation to a level that permits the property to be released
for unrestricted use.
Management and Support.—Management and support encompasses NRC central policy direction, resources management, and all administrative and logistical support.
Beginning in FY 2000, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s proposed program funding level, except where noted,
will be dependent upon the actual collection of fees, and the
request for general or special fund appropriations will be lim-

year.

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) (1) investigates Federal
employee allegations of prohibited personnel practices (including reprisal for whistleblowing) and when appropriate prosecutes before the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB);
(2) provides a channel for whistleblowing by Federal employees; and (3) enforces the Hatch Act. The OSC may transmit
whistleblower allegations to the agency head concerned and
require an agency investigation and a report to the Congress
and the President when appropriate.
Overall in FY 1997, there were more than 5,762 instances
in which the assistance or action of the OSC was sought
by federal employees and other persons. Many prohibited personnel practice and Hatch Act cases investigated by the OSC
are resolved without recourse to formal proceedings before
the MSPB. In Fiscal Year 1997 the OSC obtained 82 corrective or other favorable actions, and efforts to obtain such
negotiated resolutions will continue. In Fiscal Year 1997 the
OSC also filed 4 enforcement actions before the MSPB in
prohibited personnel practice and Hatch Act matters. The
OSC also issued 1,700 Hatch Act advisory opinions (both written and oral) to people who sought advice. During FY 1997,
the OSC’s Disclosure Unit received 306 disclosure matters
for possible referral and completed 303 of them. Fourteen
Disclosure Unit matters were referred to agency heads for
their review.
In FY 1998, the Office of Special Counsel (OSC) will continue to review its operations and procedures. The aim of
these efforts will be to make the OSC more responsive to
those individuals who seek the agency’s assistance, to improve
the productivity of the OSC’s employees, and to ensure that
the OSC is an easily accessible source of information about
the rights of government employees.
In furtherance of its respsonsibilities, and the goals and
objectives set forth in the agency’s strategic plan, the OSC
performance goals in FY 1999 will be to: (1) design and initiate a pilot project to test the impact of alternative dispute
resolution on the disposition of prohibited personnel practice
matters, (2) acquire data on compliance by federal agencies
with the statutory informational program requirement, (3)
implement electronic filing of complaints and disclosures with
the OSC (subject to FY 1998 feasibility review and assessment), and (4) replace 20% of the agency’s information technology infrastructure.

Note.—Authority to borrow is available to the Panama Canal Commission on a permanent indefinite basis.
This authority is limited only in that the amount of borrowing outstanding at any time cannot exceed $100
million.

The Panama Canal Act of 1979 established the Panama
Canal Commission to operate and maintain the interoceanic
waterway. The Commission is self-sufficient in its operations
and makes payments to the Republic of Panama as specified
in the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977. Pursuant to Public
Law 104–106, the Commission is a wholly-owned government
corporation and is funded by a revolving fund.

Note.—These numbers are based on standard business accounting techniques and therefore do not necessarily
tie with the Program and Financing schedule.

Payments to Panama include a public service payment of
$10 million, a fixed annuity of $10 million, and an annuity
based on net tonnage of vessels transiting the Canal. These
payments are prescribed in paragraph 5 of article III and
paragraphs 4(a) and 4(b) of article XIII of the Panama Canal
Treaty of 1977.

Capital obligations for 1999 include several projects for information systems infrastructure, financial management system modernization, the replacement of overaged motor vehicles, and the procurement of small equipment items.
General Corporate expenses.—General Corporate expenses
provide for the salaries and related expenses for the overall
direction and administration of the Commission, including Financial Management, Personnel Administration, and the Office of Inspector General. It also provides for non-administrative expenses which are general in nature and not associated
with any specific function. Included in these costs are: the
amortization of the expense of the special retirement provisions of the treaty implementation legislation; the interest
expense on the investment of the U.S. Government in the
Canal which is paid into the miscellaneous receipts of the
U.S. Treasury; the health and education services provided
to Commission employees and their dependents at Department of Defense facilities; the compensation benefits for work
injuries (FECA); the premiums for the Federal employees
health benefits program (FEHBA); certain other statutory
costs required by the U.S. Government; and miscellaneous
expenses of a general nature.

Financing.—The Commission has two Treasury accounts:
the Revolving Fund, which covers operations, and the Dissolution Fund, which provides for costs associated with the dissolution of the Panama Canal Commission and will not be
available for obligation until October 1, 1998. The operation
of the Canal is conducted on a commercial basis with revenues derived from tolls collected from vessels and other essential supporting services. Revenues collected are deposited in
an account in the Panama Canal Revolving Fund. Operating
and capital expenditures are then funded from this account.
The Commission may borrow from the U.S. Treasury not more
than $100 million outstanding at any time. No cash withdrawals against these funds are planned.
The amount set aside from toll receipts for a capital advance in 1999 is $80.4 million. There is a provision of $2.0
million for working capital in FY 1999.
The budget reflects a two phase toll rate increase of 8.2
percent effective January 1, 1997, and 7.5 percent effective
January 1, 1998. The Commission incurred an operating loss
of $2.0 million in 1997 and is budgeting a modest loss of
$2.6 million for 1998. Both losses will be carried forward
and fully recovered in 1999.

Public Law 105–33 repealed authorization of the appropriation for Payment to the Postal Service Fund for Nonfunded

The Postal Reorganization Act of 1970, Public Law 91–
375, converted the Post Office Department into the U.S. Postal Service, an independent establishment within the executive
branch. The Postal Service commenced operations July 1,

1126

POSTAL SERVICE—Continued
Federal Funds—Continued

POSTAL SERVICE FUND—Continued

1971. This agency is charged with providing patrons with
reliable mail service at reasonable rates and fees.
The U.S. Postal Service is governed by an 11-member Board
of Governors, including 9 Governors appointed by the President, a Postmaster General who is selected by the Governors,
and a Deputy Postmaster General who is selected by the
Governors and the Postmaster General.
Decisions on changes in domestic rates of postage and fees
for postal services are recommended to the Governors of the
Postal Service by the independent Postal Rate Commission
after a hearing on the record under the Administrative Procedure Act. The Commission also recommends decisions on
changes in the domestic mail classification schedule to the
Governors. Decisions of the Governors on rates of postage,
fees for postal services, and mail classification are final, subject to judicial review.
Effective in 1986, the Postal Service Fund (Fund) was included in the congressional and executive budget process and
taken into account in making calculations under the Balanced
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (GrammRudman-Hollings). The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
of 1989 amended title 39 of the U.S. Code by adding a new
section, 2009a, which provides that, beginning in 1990, the
receipts and disbursements of the Fund shall not be considered as part of the congressional and executive budget process
and shall not be taken into account in making calculations
under Gramm-Rudman-Hollings.
Programs.—Included are all postal activities providing window services; processing, delivery, and transportation of mail;
research and development; administration of postal field activities; and associated expenses of providing facilities and
financing.
The rapid development of electronic messaging systems
promises to increase the effectiveness of the Nation’s communications infrastructure and U.S. competitiveness in the future. As the provider of a universally available hard copy
delivery system, the United States Postal Service is encouraged to examine these emerging communications technologies
and to cooperate with the private sector on issues of integration, directory service, and strategic alliances that will facilitate the development of secure and reliable electronic messaging networks.
The transition from hard copy to electronic messaging already has begun. The Postal Service should assist in developing future messaging systems. The Postal Service’s participation should recognize the changing needs of its business, governmental, and individual customers; should focus on determining an appropriate means for public and private sector
cooperation; and should be consistent with the agency’s vision
of evolving into a premier provider of 21st century postal
communications. The Postal Service should seek to leverage
its comprehensive delivery, messaging security, and addressing directory management capabilities in a manner that promotes universal access to the benefits of these new technologies for all citizens who desire them.
Financing.—The activities of the U.S. Postal Service are
financed from the following sources: (1) mail and services
revenue; (2) reimbursements from Federal and non-Federal
sources; (3) proceeds from borrowing; (4) interest from U.S.
securities and other investments; and (5) appropriations by
the Congress. All receipts and deposits are made to the Postal
Service Fund and are available without fiscal year limitation
for payment of all expenses incurred, retirement of obligations, investment in capital assets, and investment in obligations and securities.
Separate legislation also increased the Postal Service’s statutory borrowing authority beginning in 1991. Section 2005

THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 1999

of title 39, United States Code, as amended, increased the
Postal Service’s borrowing authority by $2.5 billion in 1991
for a revised ceiling of $12.5 billion and an additional $2.5
billion in 1992 for a revised total ceiling of $15 billion. The
total net increase in amounts outstanding in any one fiscal
year were also increased and now may not exceed $2.0 billion
in obligations issued for the purpose of capital improvements
and $1.0 billion for the purpose of paying operating expenses.
As of September 30, 1999, it is expected that the total debt
instruments issued and outstanding pursuant to this authority will amount to $8.331 billion.
Operating.—Estimated revenue will total $64.246 billion in
1999. This includes $64.142 billion from mail and services
revenue, $33 million from investment income, and $71 million
accrued for revenue foregone appropriations in 1999. Total
expenses are estimated at $63.621 billion in 1999.
The Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 established the Postal Service as a fully self-sufficient, independent entity. Postal
revenues were to cover the full costs of postal operations.
When the Act was passed, the Postal Service received substantial taxpayer subsidies, both appropriated and unappropriated. Consistent with the intent of the 1970 Act, Congress
has taken steps over time to reduce these subsidies. Under
the 1974 Civil Service Retirement Fund—Postal Employee
Benefits Act, the Postal Service assumed responsibility for
paying unfunded retirement costs from wage schedule increases under postal labor contracts. These costs are not covered by normal employee/employer contributions to the retirement fund. The 1985 Reconciliation Act shifted responsibility
for paying health benefit costs of Postal annuitants retiring
after 1986 from OPM to the Postal Service. The 1987 Reconciliation Act had the Postal Service make one-time payments to defray annuitant health benefit costs in 1988 and
1989 and retirement COLA costs in 1988. (Retirement
COLAs, like wage schedule increases, result in retirement
liabilities not covered by normal retirement fund contributions.) Under the 1989 Reconciliation Act, the Postal Service
assumed responsibility for paying health benefits of survivors
of post-86 annuitants and unfunded retirement COLA liabilities for post-86 annuitants.
The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 superseded
certain existing legislation and expanded the Postal Service’s
responsibility for benefit costs of postal annuitants. Effective
October 1, 1990, the Postal Service is required to fund Civil
Service Retirement System (CSRS) COLAs and the employer’s
share of Federal Employee Health Benefit Program (FEHBP)
premiums for postal annuitants who retired after June 30,
1971, and their survivors. In addition, the Postal Service is
required to fund the retroactive CSRS COLA and FEHBP
premium costs for which the Postal Service would have been
liable if the provisions of this new legislation had been in
effect as of July 1, 1971.
Under the Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993, the Postal
Service is required to make certain payments for past COLAs
and health benefits, over and above any other payments required by law, of $693 million to the Civil Service Retirement
and Disability Fund, and $348 million to the Employees
Health Benefits Fund. These two payments are to be made
in three equal annual installments, beginning in fiscal year
1996.
The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 repealed the authorization for transitional appropriations to the Postal Service
which had funded the liabilities of the former Post Office
Department to the Employees’ Compensation Fund. Effective
October 1, 1997, these liabilities became liabilities of the Postal Service payable out of the Postal Service Fund.

The Presidio Trust is a wholly owned government corporation established by the Omnibus Parks and Public Lands
Management Act of 1996 (Public Law 104–333) to maintain
and lease property in the Presidio of San Francisco. After
this former military base was transferred to the National
Park Service (NPS), the Trust was created to take over responsibility for the hundreds of houses, office buildings, and
other facilities in an innovative manner that uses privatesector resources, but is consistent with surrounding NPS

In addition to rail social security, rail industry pensions,
and special windfalls, the Railroad Retirement Board pays
supplemental annuities to rail workers retiring at age 60
with 30 years of creditable rail service or at age 65 with
25–29 years of creditable service. Monthly benefit amounts
are calculated from a base of $23, adding $4 for every year
of service over 25, up to a maximum monthly benefit of $43.
Employers finance benefits on a pay-as-you-go basis by a
cents-per-hour tax, currently established at 35 cents per hour.

All railroad retirees receive the equivalent of a social security benefit, and they may also receive other add-ons including rail industry pension payments, windfall payments, and
supplemental annuities. Social security benefits for former
railroad employees are funded by the social security trust
funds, and rail industry pension payments are the responsibility of the rail sector.
Under current law, a financial interchange occurs once each
year between the social security trust funds and the social
security equivalent benefit (SSEB) account. The SSEB receives monthly advances from the general fund equal to an
estimate of the transfer the SSEB would have received for
the previous month if the financial interchange transfers were
on a monthly basis. Advances from the previous year are
repaid annually to the general fund immediately after the
financial interchange is received. In 1997, $3,184 million was
advanced and $3,155 million was repaid.

The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) of 1989 established the Resolution Trust
Corporation (RTC) as a temporary agency to dispose of insolvent thrift institutions. The Savings Association Insurance
Fund took over responsibility for resolving failed thrifts on
July 1, 1995, and the RTC’s assets and liabilities were transferred to the FSLIC Resolution Fund on December 31, 1995.
Of $18.3 billion appropriated to RTC in 1994 by the RTC
Completion Act, the Thrift Depositor Protection Oversight
Board determined that only $4.6 billion was required and
the excess was returned to Treasury on December 31, 1997.
When the RTC terminated, the Oversight Board’s primary
function ceased. However, approximately $3 million remains
for the Board’s continuing oversight of the Resolution Funding

The primary mission of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the Commission) is to administer and enforce the
federal securities laws in order to protect investors, and to
maintain fair, honest, and efficient markets.
Full disclosure.—This program ensures that investors will
be provided with material facts in the public offering, trading,
voting and tendering of securities. Issuers that have conducted public offerings, have securities traded in the public
markets, or have total assets and security holder populations
of specified sizes, are required to furnish management, financial, and business information to the Commission on a continuing basis in proxy materials and in annual and other
periodic reports. The staff reviews these documents on a selected basis for compliance with the disclosure requirements.
In addition, all registration statements of issuers that are
making their initial public offerings of securities and all third
party tender offer filings are reviewed by the staff. As a
result of the review process, the staff may issue comments
to issuers to elicit better compliance or, where appropriate,
refer matters for enforcement action.
Electronic filing (EDGAR).—The Commission’s EDGAR system provides the agency with the capability for electronic
receipt, analysis, and dissemination of virtually all of its full
disclosure filings. Since becoming operational in 1993,
EDGAR has received and successfully processed over 1.3 million documents submitted in approximately 491,000 separate
submissions from over 28,000 companies and funds registered
with the SEC.
Although EDGAR has proven to be a success, the system
is in need of modernization in order to take advantage of
changes in technology and respond to the demands of filers
and investors. The SEC has submitted reprogramming requests to both the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees to set aside a specified portion of excess 1997
fees (previously paid by filers) for the sole purpose of financing EDGAR modernization over a three-year period.

Prevention and suppression of fraud.—This program evaluates information indicating possible violations of the federal
securities laws. Possible violations include, among other
things, the illegal distribution of unregistered securities; fraud
in the offer, purchase, and sale of securities; insider trading,
market manipulation; and illegal conduct by broker-dealers,
investment advisers, and other regulated entities. Investigations of possible violations are conducted and, if appropriate,
enforcement actions are initiated. Actions include civil proceedings seeking injunctive and other relief and administrative proceedings. The Commission is now authorized to seek
court orders imposing civil monetary penalties for any securities law violation as well as to seek such penalties against
regulated entities in administrative proceedings. Under appropriate circumstances matters are referred for criminal prosecution.

Investment management regulation.—This program administers the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The staff reviews disclosure documents filed by investment companies and investment advisers
and regulates and inspects investment companies and investment advisers to protect investors against fraud, self-dealing,
inadequate disclosure, and other abuse. The staff refers serious violations for enforcement action. This program also is
responsible for administering the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 1935.

Legal and economic services.—This program provides a
range of legal services and economic analyses to the Commission concerning its law enforcement, regulatory, and legislative activities, including: (i) prosecution of enforcement actions
in appellate courts; (ii) representation of the Commission in
all other appellate litigation, in private litigation where the
Commission appears as amicus curiae, and in corporate reorganizations; (iii) representation of the Commission in actions
brought against the Commission and its employees; (iv) preparation of Congressional testimony and comments and advice
concerning proposed securities legislation; (v) advice to the
Commission concerning issues arising from its law enforcement and regulatory activities; (vi) preparation of draft opinions of adjudicatory decisions and advice to the Commission
regarding its adjudicatory decisions; (vii) advice to the Commission regarding compliance with government-wide statutes
and the statutes and rules applicable to the agency’s activities; and (viii) economic analyses of proposed regulations and
legislation, litigation support in enforcement cases, and independent studies of issues affecting the securities markets.
In addition, the administrative law judges conduct hearings
and issue initial decisions in formal administrative proceedings where the Commission has determined that hearings
are appropriate in the public interest and for the protection
of public investors.

Supervision and regulation of securities markets.—Trading
in the securities markets is regulated to protect investors
against fraud and manipulation and to ensure the maintenance of fair, orderly, efficient, and competitive markets. The
Commission oversees the work of self-regulatory organizations, monitors securities markets and broker-dealer operations, and develops regulatory strategies for coping with
market stress, promoting compliance, and meeting changing
domestic and international conditions. The Commission also
conducts examinations of broker-dealers and inspections of
transfer agents, clearing agencies, and self-regulatory organizations.

Program direction.—This program assists the Commission
in fulfilling its statutory requirements and in responding to
changes in the securities industry by carefully evaluating priorities, formulating and implementing policies, and managing
agency resources. The staff provides management direction
and analysis, internal control, financial management, personnel management, data processing, public affairs, records management, information dissemination, general administrative
services, and processing of equal employment opportunity
complaints.
Due to the timing of fee collections, a general fund appropriation of $118,098,000 is requested in 1999. This one-time
increase in the general fund appropriation will enable the
Commission to accommodate the elimination of appropriated
budget authority which provides a guaranteed funding level
that is later reduced as actual collections are received. The
current schedule of fee collections is set forth in the ‘‘National
Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996’’ (P.L. 104–290),
which was signed by the President on October 11, 1996. Title
IV of this law amends fee language found in Section 6(b)
of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 31 of the Securities
and Exchange Act of 1934. Under this law, the Section 6(b)
fee rate paid by corporations to register securities with the
Commission was reduced from $303 per $1,000,000 of the
aggregate price of securities offered in 1997 to $295 per
$1,000,000 in 1998, and will be further reduced in 1999 to
$278 per $1,000,000 of the offering amount. The first $200
per $1,000,000 of this fee shall be deposited in the general
fund of the U.S. Treasury, and the remaining increment will
be made available for use by the Commission. In addition,
to promote equity across securities markets, the ‘‘National
Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996’’ extended Section 31 transaction fees to the over-the-counter market at
a rate of 1/300 of one percent of the aggregate dollar amount

The State Justice Institute was established by the Congress
in 1984 as a private, non-profit corporation to make grants
and undertake other activities designed to improve the administration of justice in the United States. Appropriations in
1999 are intended to provide for continuation of Institute
operations at a reduced level. In addition to the $6 million
requested for State Justice Institute, the President’s Budget
requests $60 million in the Office of Justice Programs’ (Department of Justice) Violent crime reduction trust fund for
assistance to Violent Youth Courts.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was created in 1933
as a Government-owned corporation for the unified development of a river basin comprised of parts of seven States.
The President’s budget proposes that the agency’s program
in 1999 be financed from three sources: (1) appropriations
by the Congress; (2) proceeds available from current power
operations and borrowings against future power revenues; and
(3) proceeds available from nonpower activities.
The President’s Budget includes $76.8 million to be appropriated for the agency’s non-power programs in 1999. This
will ensure that these programs continue to be funded and
operated as the Administration and Congress consider alternatives for the agency in both the power and non-power areas.
The following table provides detailed information on programs

TVA’s program paid for by appropriations.—As a federal
corporation, TVA serves national interests by operating infrastructure services for the production of electricity, economic
development and the stewardship of natural resources in 201
counties in seven states.
Appropriations provide for public services to maintain and
operate public resources—navigable channels, flood control,
recreation, and non-regulatory, community-based programs
that protect the water quality of the Tennessee River system.
Federal appropriations do not support TVA’s power program.
The Budget proposes that $76.8 million be appropriated for
these purposes in 1999.
Water and Land Stewardship.—Funds TVA’s statutory obligation to operate 54 dams and reservoirs to regulate streamflow for the multi-purpose objectives of navigation, flood control, recreation and aquatic habitat conservation; perform cyclic maintenance and repair of 14 navigation locks, maintain
dam machinery and spillway gates; perform channel, lock and
mooring modifications to maintain safety and passability for
increasingly larger cargo vessels; conserve and improve water
quality and supply in 12 watersheds and dam tailwaters for
fisheries and potable supply for 4 million people; control mosquitoes and plant pests; prevent shoreline erosion and manage residential development in riparian zones; plan for and
manage 630,000 hectares (1.7 million acres) of land; provide
services and education to watershed communities; operate
public recreation areas; and meet federal regulatory law requirements.
Land Between the Lakes.—Partially funds Land Between
The Lakes as the hub of a tourism and recreation industry
that annually generates $400 million in economic activity in
nine contiguous counties.

TENNESSEE VALLEY AUTHORITY—Continued
Federal Funds—Continued

OTHER INDEPENDENT AGENCIES

Environmental Research Center.—Partially funds the cost
of remediation and cleanup of TVA’s Muscle Shoals Reservation site in accordance with the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA) and other State and Federal regulations. Federal funding at ERC will be phased out over four
years (1996–1999).
Chickamauga Lock and Dam.—Funds initial stages of a
construction project for replacement of the navigation lock
which has irreparably deteriorated and is inadequate for existing and projected river traffic.
TVA’s Power Program.—TVA’s role as the sole supplier of
electric power to an area of 80,000 square miles in the seven
Tennessee Valley States is being reviewed as the Nation considers ways to restructure the electric power industry. Income
from power operations, net of interest charges and depreciation, and other operating expenses is estimated at
$272,000,000 in 1999. Power generating facilities are financed
from power proceeds and borrowings. The Budget reflects specific cost-cutting measures the agency is taking to implement
its 10-Year Business plan and improve its ability to supply
power at competitive prices. For example, TVA will cut costs
and reduce its outstanding debt by $2 billion by the end
of 1999.

Operating results and financial conditions.—Payments to
the Treasury from power proceeds in 1999 are estimated at
$58,000,000—$38,000,000 as a dividend (return on the appropriation investment in the power program) and $20,000,000
as a reduction in the appropriation investment in the power
program. Outstanding borrowings for the power program are
expected to decrease by $965,000,000 during 1999.
Total assets are estimated to decrease by $747,000,000 during 1999 as depreciation of existing assets exceeds expenditures for new assets. The estimate of liabilities at September
30, 1999, is $962,000,000 less than the estimate at September
30, 1998. Total Government equity at September 30, 1999,
is estimated to be $215,000,000 greater than that at September 1998. This change includes the requested appropriation
for 1999 and the net income from power operations, less payments to the Treasury and the net expense of nonpower
programs.

The Combined benefit fund was established by the Coal
Industry Retiree Health Benefit Act of 1992 to take over
paying for medical care of retired miners and their dependents who were eligible for health care from the private 1950
and 1974 United Mine Workers of America Benefit Plans.
The Fund’s trustees represent the United Mine Workers of
America and coal companies. The Fund is financed by assessments on current and former signatories to labor agreements

The 1992 Benefit Plan was established by the Coal Industry
Retiree Health Benefit Act of 1992. It pays for health care
of those miners who retired between July 21, 1992 and September 30, 1994, and their dependents, who are eligible for
benefits under an employer plan and cease to be covered,
usually because an employer is out of business. Plan trustees
are appointed by the United Mine Workers of America and
the Bituminous Coal Operators Association, a coal industry
bargaining group. The Plan is supported by signatories to
the 1988 labor agreement with the United Mine Workers
of America.

The United States Enrichment Corporation (the Corporation or USEC) is the world leader in production and sales
of uranium enrichment services for commercial nuclear power
plants. As a wholly owned U.S. government corporation established by the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (Energy Policy Act),
all common stock issued and outstanding is held by the Department of the Treasury. USEC began operations July 1,
1993, and was created as an initial step in privatizing the
government’s uranium enrichment activities. The Corporation
provides uranium enrichment services to electric utilities operating nuclear reactors in 14 countries, including the U.S.
As directed by the Energy Policy Act, the Corporation submitted a privatization plan to the President in 1995. In April
1996, the USEC Privatization Act was signed into law. In
July 1997, the President approved the implementation of
USEC’s privatization. USEC is working with the Department
of the Treasury and other government agencies to design
and implement the details of the final privatization transaction. The USEC Board of Directors, with the approval of
the Secretary of the Treasury, must determine that the privatization of USEC will satisfy certain criteria set forth in
the Energy Policy Act and the USEC Privatization Act. The
budget reflects a projected transaction date of May 1, 1998.
By moving out of the government and applying privatesector discipline, USEC will remain a viable competitor in
the global market for uranium enrichment services, and preserve a reliable source of domestic enrichment capacity. As
a private corporation, USEC will be able to make the financial
investment necessary to more efficiently commercialize the
Atomic Vapor Laser Isotope Separation (AVLIS) process, the
next generation of enrichment technology.
Budget program.—During 1997, USEC maintained its position as the world leader in uranium enrichment by negotiating new sales agreements and working to improve plant operations. In March, as regulatory oversight responsibility was
transferred from the Department of Energy to the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Corporation introduced
initiatives to reinforce safety and efficiency as top priorities
at enrichment facilities that were more than 40 years old.
In 1998, USEC is cooperating with the Department of Energy
to continue the demonstration of plant-scale AVLIS components at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, with emphasis shifting to integrated operation of the laser and separator systems to verify enrichment production economics.
Progress on plant design continues in support of a license
application submittal to the NRC.
USEC, in its third year as Executive Agent for the U.S.
Government, continued to receive shipments of low enriched
uranium (LEU) blended down from highly enriched uranium
taken from former Soviet nuclear weapons. To date, USEC

has purchased over 4.6 million separative work units (SWU)
in the form of LEU, and has committed to purchase 22.9
million SWU through 2001. These purchases comprise nearly
one third of the 20-year ageeement’s LEU, and will result
in the dismantling of approximately 7,000 Soviet-era nuclear
warheads.
Operating results.—USEC’s net income for 1997 was $237
million and is expected to be approximately $101 million
through the anticipated privatization date of May 1, 1998.
USEC paid a $120 million dividend to the Treasury in 1997,
and expects to pay a dividend in 1998. Net proceeds from
the sale of the Corporation are expected to be approximately
$1,600 million.

Note.—In 1998 and 1999, all staff and associated support costs for Educational and Cultural Affairs will
be funded in the Exchanges programs account.

The United States Information Agency conducts the international informational, educational, cultural and exchange
programs of the United States and advises the President,
the National Security Council, and the Secretary of State
on these matters. The Agency defines, explains, and advocates
U.S. policies abroad and seeks to increase knowledge and
understanding among foreign audiences of U.S. society and
its values.
The USIA Strategic Plan for 1997–2002 was submitted to
Congress in September 1997 in compliance with the 1993
Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA). The Agency expects to submit its FY 1999 Performance Plan to the
Congress in February 1998.
USIA’s efforts to realize the benefits of a well-functioning
performance and results management system are underway.
Agency elements are collecting data and beginning to make
management and program decisions based on the findings.
Overseas field posts are submitting more concise and focused
reports for data collection and identifying their objectives
more clearly. These objectives are closely linked to and
aligned with the strategic goals of the International Affairs
Strategic Plan through continuing collaboration with our
counterparts and colleagues in the State Department and
other foreign affairs agencies in developing a strategic framework for the mission and goals of the foreign affairs community as a whole.
Using the Strategic and Performance Plans as a guide,
the Agency is focusing its resources more directly on the
strategic goals and performance objectives and, to this end,
is reviewing management and budget systems to achieve more
visible accountability.
Agency overseas information and cultural program operations and support functions are financed from this appropriation and consist of the following major elements.

Personnel Summary

INTERNATIONAL INFORMATION PROGRAMS—Continued

Overseas missions.—The Agency currently operates 192
U.S. Information Service (USIS) posts in 141 countries. These
USIS posts administer exchange-of-persons programs and conduct informational and cultural activities using, primarily,
materials and programs provided by support offices in Washington, D.C.
Bureau of Information.—This technologically advanced Bureau supports U.S. foreign policy by means of instant and
in-depth communications with international opinion leaders
and policy makers. The Bureau provides information electronically through the Agency’s World Wide Web home pages,
its daily Washington File and biweekly thematic journals.
It supports the Agency’s U.S. foreign press centers and overseas Information Resource Centers, which draw on databases
and other electronically delivered information. The Bureau
supports U.S. speakers and specialists at U.S. Information
Service posts not only through overseas travel, but also
through interactive dialogues via telephone and digitized
video conferences. It also publishes pamphlets and other
printed materials for distribution to those who influence international opinion.
Agency direction and management.—This activity includes
managerial staffs, research and centralized servicing functions
for the Agency.
Administrative support from other agencies.—This activity
includes payment to the Department of State for USIA’s share
of the costs of services provided for overseas operations. The
Department was reimbursed for the Distributed Administrative Support (DAS) services by participating agencies under
the Foreign Affairs Administrative Support System (FAAS)
in 1997. In 1998, the FAAS system is being replaced with
the International Cooperative Administrative Support Services (ICASS) system. This activity also covers payments to
the General Services Administration for space and services
provided under the Federal building rent system, and payments to other agencies for services provided.

This appropriation provides funding for non-broadcasting
information technology improvements for USIA, including
purchases and development of hardware, software, contractual services, and training.
In 1999, USIA will continue with development of missionoriented technology innovations overseas; train our staff to
gain maximum productivity from our investment in technology; and continue the implementation of an improved core
Financial Management System, using the State Department’s
Central Financial Management System. In addition, USIA
will complete its initiative to ensure agency systems meet
year 2000 compliance standards.

the Bureau will continue to develop the exchanges coordination function as an instrument of policy support, working
closely with dozens of Federal departments and agencies
which are striving with USIA to achieve such coordination.

to encourage and strengthen the development of democratic
institutions and processes internationally. NED supports
democratic initiatives in six regions of the world: Africa, Asia,

directly but its Board approves annual grants to the American
Center for International Solidarity, the Center for International Private Enterprise, the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute for International
Affairs, and scores of indigenous organizations working to
promote civic education, human rights, independent media,
and other democratic processes and values.

This appropriation provides operational funding for all
United States non-military international broadcasting. The
account reflects the requirements of the International Broadcasting Act of 1994 (the Act) to consolidate all non-military
international broadcasting activities. Specifically, the appropriation will fund the Broadcasting Board of Governors
(BBG), the Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty
(RFE/RL), Radio Free Asia, the WORLDNET Television and
Film Service, Radio and Television Broadcasting to Cuba, and

the necessary engineering, technical, and administrative support activities.
Pursuant to the Foreign Affairs Authorization Act, Fiscal
Years 1994–95, RFE/RL continues to seek and explore opportunities for private sector funding. Significant steps have been
taken over the past three years.
The RFE/RL Research Institute was privatized in 1994 by
founding, together with the Open Society Institute, the Open
Media Research Institute (OMRI). In 1997, Open Society Institute ended its support for OMRI. RFE/RL took back a
small part of OMRI operations essential to support broadcasting. All other RFE/RL research operations were terminated.
Since passage of the Act, RFE/RL has placed priority on
privatizing its Polish and Czech language services. In 1994,
both services were reconstituted as separate non-profit corporations. RFE/RL explored private funding of its Warsawbased Polish service spin-off, RWE, with several media companies over the past three years. These discussions were ultimately unsuccessful. RFE/RL’s Polish-language broadcasting
ceased at the end of 1997. RFE/RL entered into a joint venture with Czech Public Radio for Czech-language broadcasting
in 1995. The Czech host government, which provides RFE/
RL’s rent-free headquarters in Prague, has asked RFE/RL
to ensure that these broadcasts continue. Czech Public Radio
pays most of the costs, and minor underwriting support from
Czech companies has been obtained.
RFE/RL’s efforts to privatize to date suggest severe limits
on the potential for advertising or underwriting revenue for
news and public affairs programming in the former Soviet
bloc. In much of this area, significant advertising markets
have yet to develop. Where advertising markets do exist, they
are often barely able to sustain small, emerging local broadcasters, who concentrate mainly on popular music and other
entertainment programming.
A special office at RFE/RL headquarters has been established to continue to explore privatization opportunities.
In compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act, International Broadcasting has developed five performance measures. Baselines for 1997 and 1998, and targets
for 1999 have been developed. Research methodology is in
place for some of the measures, while under development
for others.
In 1998 and prior years, funding for Radio and Television
Broadcasting to Cuba was provided in a separate appropriation.
