About 28,000 employee parking spaces are provided at Federal facilities in the Washington, DC area with an estimated monthly rental value of $1.4 million. Federal regulations require that carpools be given priority in the assignment of parking spaces. The Office of Management and Budget currently is studying the Federal parking issue but does not know when this will be completed. Environmental Protection Agency officials believe that about 75 large urban areas with severe automobile pollutant problems will not be able to meet Federal air quality standards by 1982. Washington, DC is the only urban area where Federal employee parking policy would have a significant impact on Federal air quality standards. This report was prepared at the request of Senator James Abourezk. Because of time constraints, information is based on agency records and there are no GAO conclusions or recommendations.
