849 September 6,1991 BACK TO BUDGETINGAS USUAL NEW SPENDING CAPS LEAVE ROOM FOR PLENTY OF PORK INTRODUCTION Less than one year after concludin g the 1990 budget deal with the White House, Congress has nsumed budgeting as usual. Last years grand budget bar gain was supposed to bring new discipline to the budget mess, to fme lawmak ers to choose between man impcntant and less important programs, a nd to begin to eliminate unnecessary pork barrel spending.

Residents budget and crafts its own; members of Congress dole out money to fa vored special interests; congressional Committees micromanage the bureaucracy Congress continues giving money to ineffi cient and ineffective programs rather than shutting them down; federal spending continues to grow unabated; and the deficit shows no sign of shrinking.

Some Washington insiders praised last years budget deal saying that it put real new spending caps on di scretianary programs and would farce lawmakers to evd uate their priorities and to trade off wasteful or inefficient programs if they wantedhighcrspendingonmanimporurntpro~s.Thisyearlawmakersin deed have complained bitterly about their inability to addres s what they say are pressing M~~OIU~ issues because of the ostensibly stringent spending caps En intunatiod spending. But as far domestic discretionary spending, the new budget conmls failing completely.

As it is, this years budget contains enough money to keep nearly all spending addicts satisfied. The mson is that the spending caps on domestic disnetionary spending have been set at veq high levels, far in excess of the growth rates for mestic discretionary spending that were projected only a few months b e fan the But it is now budgeting as usual. This means: Congress dismisses the Failed Controls To be sure, spending caps have cut defense spending and ike budget summit concluded. The fiscal 1991 growth cap is at 9.5 percent, even though the projected futur e growth rate was only 5.2 percent. The fiscal 1992 growth cap is 6.1 percent, though the growth projection was only 4.5 percent.

And the 1993 fiscal growth cap is 5.3 percent, well above the 2.8 percent growth projection. The budget summits boost gave the big spenders a h-year binge of 27.3 billion extra for domestic discretionary spending Lining Up at the Trough. Fbdictably, Congress took advantage of this gift fattening existing programs and larding the fiscal 1991 budget with new pork bar rel spending. Some of the more notable projects that Congress saw fit to fund with the higher taxes and the higher budget deficit include the $3.6 million Urban Gardening Program, the $1 million National Bicycling and Walking Study, and the $50,000 Recreational Boating Census. Congressional appropriators apparently have been so spoiled by the 9.5 percent windfall for fiscal 1991 that the 6.1 per cent increase for fiscal 1992 seems terribly restrictive. And since federal pro grams, once created, rarely are folded, all of last years new projects, which never would have seen the light of day had it not been for last falls tax increase and subsequent spending spree, are now lining up at the fiscal 1992 trough.

The spending caps have not forced Congress to abandon its habit o f micromanaging executive branch agencies and in many cases forcing the bureau cracy to waste money. For instance, in the appropriations bills passed in the House this year, members have Prevented the sale of federal loans to the private loan market Preve n ted the Farmers Home Administration from using private collection agencies to collect on billions of dollars in defaulted loans Mandated employment floors for numerous federal programs; effectively prohibiting them from reducing costs through privatizatio n or eliminating duplicative staffing Placed a general provision in all appropriations bills prohibiting the elimi nation or disproportionate reduction of programs, projects or activities that is, prohibiting agencies from saving money unless Congress says so Earmarked billions of dollars for =search projects, highway projects, and construction projects, even though most agencies have firmly established rules governing competition for these monies; and Prohibited the Power Marketing Administration, which ru ns the federal dams in the Western states, from even studying the market rate pricing of subsidized electricity sold to cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Although it is only midway through the fiscal 1992 budget process, Congress has already shown that it is back to business as usual, wasting taxpayers money and even preventing the executive branch from finding ways to lower the cost of government.

ILLUSORY SPENDING CONSTRAINTS Last years contentious budget negotiations led some Washington insiders to predict that Congress would live within the constraints of the budget deal.

Much has been made of budget caps that supposedly would curtail the ability of Congress to spend irresponsibly insiders journal ran a story titled No Joy Among the Cardhals as painful Choices Begin. It said As the appropiations process began, Congressional Qucurerly, the Washington What was easy for budget drafters has turned out to be a nightmare for appropriators. Living within the spending limits imposed by last years budge t agreement has farced agonizing choices and provoked suggestions that the deal, not yet a year old, be modifiedorjunked.

Both supporters and detractors of the spending caps have a stake in giving the impression that spending is now under control. On the o ne hand, supporters, in cludingwhite House oficials, want to refute those who apposed the budget agree ment on the grounds that it increased spending. Budget agreement supporters need to demonstrate that the tough spending nmaints are worth the price of G e orge Bush breaking his no-new-taxes pledge. On the other hand, the big spend ers in Congress, who oppose any spending caps, hope that their protests will be taken as proof that caps reaUy constrain spending and that the public will not look closely at wha t really is kine appropriated 8250 8200 8150 8100 850 80 Chart 1 Average Annual Domestic Discretionary Spending Billion8 of Conatant lS8S Dollar8 1 8188 8182.5 knnrdyl Johnron NImn NI.on/ Carter Rrr0.n Rrrgrn Burh Johnron Ford Firrt 8rcond Term Term Hmrlta g r DrtrChrrt By Prrridrntlrl Adrnlnlrtrrtlon 1 George Hager. NO JOY hang the cardinals BS Paidid Choices Begin, Congressionul Quarterly, May 25 1991, p. 1360 3 Massive Boost. In reality, domestic discretionary spending in fiscal 1993, the last year for whi ch the caps will be in place, will be 22 percent, or $40 billion higher than Bushs first budget in fucall990, and 33 percent, or $54 billion larger than Ronald Reagans last budget in fiscal 19

89. After adjusting for infla tion, this massive boost will sen d domestic discretionary spending to itshighest annual constant dollar level since Jimmy Carters last budget. Over the past three decades, in fact, only the Carter Administration consistently spent as much in real terms on domestic discretionary programs as is now being spent by Bush. Chart 1 compares the average four-year inflation-adjusted spending levels of the past five presidents.

Following the massive build up in domestic discretionary spending under Car ter, domestic discretionary spending in the budgets for Reagans first four fiscal years grew on average by 1.4 percent annually. This rate accelerated during Reagans second term t o an average annual rate of 3.9 percent. Chart 2 shows what levels of domestic discretionary spending would have been had this rate con tinued through 1993 in comparison with the actual spending levels resulting from the budget deal. The cumulative Bush fo ur-year increase in spending above the Reagan rate is $73 billion of Management and Budget projected just four months before the summit agree ment for fiscal 1991,1992, and 19

93. Those projections, using 1990 as the base year, include the inflation-adjust ed costs of maintaining programs at their current levels and of routine growth to meet anticipated new needs. Each of these levels is well below the actual levels agreed to by the budget summiteers. This increase alone gave congressional big spenders a $2 7 billion bonus of domestic discretion ary spending during the three-year period Chart 2 also shows the levels of domestic discretionary spending that the Office Chart 2 Domestic Discretionary Spending Before and After Budget Summit Billion8 of Currant 5 5 250 October 1990 Summit Agreement 5225 5200 5176 5160 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 Herllaom DmlmChmrl Budget Summit Source: Buagel 01 rne U.S. GOvKVflIWflt FY 1992.

I 4 FIGHTING PORK BARREL SPENDING In all too typical fashion, Congress is Using this $27 billio n windfall to reward its favorite constituencies. The fiscal 1991 budget bill became a Christmas tree of gifts to hundreds of special interests, repsentirig everything from catfish farms to zebra mussel research Alarmed by the proliferation of such spendi n g, Senator Bob Smith, the New Hampshire Re publican, Representative Harris Fawell, the Illinois Republican and Representative Timothy Penny, the Minnesota Democrat organized a group of Congress men who call themselves PorkBusters This group has de veloped a standardized definition of pork barrel spending, and is now attempting to rescind those items in the fiscal 1991 spending bills that fit the definition.

Using this test, the ParkBusters find wasted taxpayer money on hundreds of projects. Among them from the fiscal 1991 budget I $37,000 to study the han dling of animal manure and the development of resolu tion techniques to address conflicts between produc ers and the general public 150,000 to the town of Matewan, West Virginia, to study the century-old H at field-McCoy feud 320,000 to purchase Presi dent William McKinleys in-laws home and donate it to the state of Ohio 942,000 to produce re fined fish oil, which is then donated to the National Institutes of Health for research 25,000 to study the location for a new House of Representatives staff gym nasium 5 These and scores of similar expenditures the fiscal 1991 budget suggest that policy makers are not constrained in the slightest by the putative spending caps placed on them by the 1990 budget agreement . Idenafjing programs that meet three of these seven criteria, the PorkBusters have found over $1 billion of pork that their bill, the Porkbusting Act of 1991 (S. 1288 and H.R. 2643 would re scindwhile many members would argue that $1 billion of pork barre l spending in a $1.4 trillion budget does not amount to very much, the PorkBusters use a very strict definition of pork. A broader interpretation of pork, using only one cri terion, particularly No. 7 which targets projects of purely local interest without na tional or regional importance, possibly would capture tens of billions more in un necessary or wasteful spending items KNOW-NOTHING CONGRESS Almost as serious as its uncontrolled spending is how Congress micromanages federal agencies in a way that make s it Micult or impossible for federal manag ers to save money. These congressional directives, among other things, prevent privatization of federal commercial enterprises, force bloated payrolls by estab lishing minimum staff employment levels, and even pr event duplicate programs from being merged or reorganized.

Typical of congressional htives to the federal agencies is Section 606(a) of the Departments of Commerce, Justice, and State, the Judiciary, and Related Agencies Appropriations Bill, Fiscal Year 19 92.This section p rovides for the Committees usual policy concerning the reprogramming of funds. Section 606(a prohibits the reprogramming of funds which 1 creates new programs 2) eliminates a program project, or activity 3) increases funds or personnel b y any means for any project or activity for which funds have been denied or restricted 4) relocates an office or employees 5) reorganizes offices, programs, or activities; or (6) contracts out or privatizes any functions or activities presently performed b y federal employees unless the Appropriations Committees of both Houses of Congress are notified 15 days in advance. In plain English, this section forbids the Departments of Commerce, Justice and State, and the judiciary from uying to save money by elimin a ting or reorgan izing any programs or activities. In the section, versions of which are found in other bills, Congress says: Do nothing unless we know about it, especially if it reduces our control of the purse strings tion of federal commercial enterpris e s or services. This action explicitly has pm tected some 70 percent of federal commercial enterprises from private sector de livery. This year, as in years past, Congress has included provisions blocking even the study of privatization options. These meas u res cost the taxpayer tens of bil lions of dollars Over the past several years, Congress has passed 37 laws blocking the privatiza 6 Example: The Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) is prohibited from hir ing private debt collection fms to collect delinque nt loan payments. According to the mice of Management and Budget, FmHA had to write off $7 billion in loan losses in th last two years and expects to write off another $1.5 billion by the end of 19

92. Turning these loans over to private collection agencie s could yield millions of dollars for the federal treasury s Example: The five regional Power Marketing Administrations (PMAs which control 127 federal dams, are prohibited from the use of funds to conduct any studies relating or leading to market rate pr i cing. It has been estimated that the PMAs underprice by $1.5 billion per year the electricity they sell to users, some of which ax^ multi-billion dollar utility companies Example: Loans made by the agricultural credit insurance fund may not be sold to the commercial loan market despite $4.5 billion in direct loan losses over the past two years? Seliing these loans to the private sector would not only bring in revenues to the government, but would also diffuse the governments loan ex posure.

By mandating mi nimum staff employment levels on federal agencies, Congress prevents not only privatization, but any efforts to streamline the bmaucracy and eliminate duplication as well. Duplicative programs abound throughout govern ment as a result of lawmakers attempt s to take credit far solving a problem re gardless of what programs may already exist to solve similar or identical prob lems Example: Congress mandated that the Economic Development Administra tion (IDA) maintain 49 permanent Economic Development Represen t atives and that at least one full-time representative be placed in every state. The EDA has been targeted for abolition by the Reagan Administration, the Bush Adminisua tion, and the Congressional Budget Office because it duplicates at least a dozen other economic development programs and has become a convenient program by which members can fund pork bml projects Example: The non-profit American Fisheries Society has identified 37 federal agencies with responsibilities for fisheries policies. These include : The National Marine Fisheries Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Forest Ser vice, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Soil Conservation Senrice, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Man y of these fisheries programs not only duplicate each other, but also act at cross purposes with other programs. This situation causes considerable confusion in the commercial and recreational fishing industries 2 Budget of the United States, Fiscal Year 1 992, Part Two, p. 231 3 Ibid p. 241 7 Example: The Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act of 1987, in tended to help the homeless, created seventeen different programs administered through seven federal agencies. Yet there were already over sixty sep a rate federal programs providing assistance to the homeless Federal Civilian Employees Source: Budget of the United States, Fiscal Year 1992 Note: Excludes seasonal and part-time employees 8 BLOATED FEDERAL PAYROLLS Due in part to this duplication, the exe c utive branch has added some 60,000 new full-time, civilian employees during the past three years, an increase of 5.6 percent. During this period, too, the costs of compensating all of the 1.17 million federal civilian agency bureaucrats has risen from $83 . 3 billion annually to 102.8 billion, a 23 percent inmase the past year has demased because of the recession brought on in part by last years record tax increase. Corporations across the country are downsizing and laying off workers. Other enterpxises have shut down completely. Entrepreneurs who might start businesses, creating new jobs, find it impossible to do so.The re cession has alr%ady thrown 1.35 million Americans out of work. The unemploy ment rate has risen from 5.3 percent in June 1990 to 7.0 perc e nt today While the number of federal employees has risen, private sector employment in CONCLUSION In theory, placing caps on the growth of spending is a good way to get control of runaway spending. But the domestic discretionary spending caps established b y last years budget agreement make a mockery of the tern cap. Because these new caps were set well above any levels previously projected, Congresss spend ers effectively were handed an extra $27 billion. As the list of spending items con tained in the App endix shows, Congress is wasting no time in finding creative new ways to spend this money.

But beyond their compulsive spending habits, lawmakers also have set up road blocks to reasonable and effective cost-cutting measures such as privatization merging d uplicative programs, and closing down inefficient agencies. At a time when millions of Americans have been farced to tighten their belts, Congress con tinues to binge at taxpayer expense.

Good Faith Effort. If lawmakers claims are sincere about reducing t he deficit they must do something to eliminate pork bml spending. Rescinding the spend ing items identified by the PorkBusters group would be a good faith effort to prove that Congress wants to lower the deficit. Using a broader definition of pork lawmake rs should then begin to eliminate all programs that enrich narrow special interests or parts of the country. A federal elected body such as Congress should not involve itself in issues better left to town councils, county boards, and state legislatures.

Sc ott A. Hodge Grover M. Hennann Fellow in Federal Budgetary Affairs Heritage Foundation research interns Julieann G. Kelly, Kevin Fletcher, and Tracy Ambler contributed to the preparation of this study 9 INTRODUCTION If asked to identify five federal progr a ms, most taxpayers would probably name Defense, Social Security, Medicare, and perhaps a handful of others such as NASA the National Aeronautics and Space Administration farm programs in general and Food Stamps. It is not likely that many Americans could list Cargo Preference Differential Subsidies, Kenafresearch, the Scrapie Negotiated Rule Making Com mittee, the Steel Industry HeritageTask Force or a thousand other programs just as insignificant.

This is just the limited knowledge of federal spending mos t policy makers prefer taxpayers to have. Members of Congress want taxpayers to believe that the only way to cut spending is to weaken the nations defense or to take away their parents retirement benefits. The less taxpayers know about where their tax dol lars are going, reason the lawmakers, the mm they will accept future tax hikes to pay for special interest spending.

The programs contained in the following lists below were gleaned from seven of the thirteen appropriations bills passed recently in the Hou se. These seven bills fund the majority of domestic discretionary programs. The Senate is now in the pro cess of passing its own versions of all thirteen appropriations bills. Once competed the separate versions of each bill will be taken up in a joint co n ference committee comprised of representatives of both the House and Senate. These two versions then will be combined into a single version. This last version, if successfully passed by both houses of Congress, is then submitted to the President, who will ei ther sign it into law or veto it. All thirteen signed appropriations bills comprise the federal budget for the following fiscal year, which begins on October 1.

The following programs may not always fit the description of pork, either as technically defined by the PorkBusters group or in the generally-accepted sense of wasteful constituent-driven programs. In many cases, the programs appear because they benefit a special or localized interest, rather than the interest of the nation. In other cases, these are programs that should not be the responsibilty of a federal gov ernment; they should be provided by state and local governments, private compa nies, private ch a rities and neighborhood organizations, or even individuals them selves. Lastly, some of these programs are listed simply because taxpayers should know of their existance and members of Congress would prefer that they did not 10 DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE A d visory
