DOT'S BUDGET: CHALLENGES FACING THE DEPARTMENT IN FISCAL YEAR 1997 AND BEYOND. TESTIMONY

This is the statement of John H. Anderson, Jr., Director, Transportation Issues, Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division, General Accounting Office (GAO), before the Subcommittee on Transportation, Committee on Appropriations, House of Representatives, on the challenges facing the Department of Transportation (DOT) and its various modal administrations during fiscal year 1997 and beyond. With more than $35 billion in fiscal year 1996 appropriations, DOT is responsible for ensuring the safe and efficient movement of people and goods and cost-effective investment in the nation's transportation infrastructure, including its highways and transit systems, railroads, airports, airways, ports, and waterways. Pressures to reduce the federal budget will increase competition among the various transportation administrations for scarce federal funds.
