OMB LISTS PROGRAMS THAT COULD GET AXED
"More than 140 federal programs could be eliminated or reduced according to a document the Office of Management and Budget released late last week.
In the Major Savings and Reforms Volume and in President George W. Bush’s proposed FY 2007 budget, OMB listed 141 federal programs that are being proposed for termination or reduction.
'When President Bush gave me guidance on what the 2007 budget should look like, he directed me to focus on national priorities and tighten our belt elsewhere,” said OMB Director Joshua B. Bolten. “Congress substantially delivered on the President’s spending restraint goals last year, and after speaking with members at this week’s Congressional hearings, I’m optimistic we can again provide a significant level of savings for American taxpayers.'"
