Subject: [CPEO-BIF] GAO summarizes EPA/HHS hazwaste expenditures
The Government Accountability Office has issued a new summary of federal
spending on Superfund and Brownfields by EPA and offices within the
Department of Health And Human Services, from fiscal years 1993 through
2005. It reports:

"Total funding for the Superfund and Brownfields programs and the
Superfund-related programs of the ATSDR and NIEHS, in current year
dollars, remained relatively constant from fiscal year 1993 to fiscal
year 2005. In inflation-adjusted dollars, however, the total funding for
these programs decreased from about $1.9 billion in fiscal year 1993 to
about $1.5 billion in fiscal year 2005."

"Hazardous Waste Programs: Information on Appropriations and
Expenditures for Superfund, Brownfields, and Related Programs,"
GAO-05-746R, June 30, 2005
