The $1.96-trillion fiscal year 2002 federal budget proposed by the Bush administration on April 9 holds overall discretionary funding to a 4% increase in an effort to meet the funding requirements of non-discretionary needs, a 10-year tax cut, and big increases in defense, education, and medical research.
The budget also takes what one White House official called a “pause” from the 8% “spending spree” under the Clinton administration during FY2001, as deliberations proceed on future funding priorities following the drawn-out presidential election and the short budget preparation period.
