A Citizen's Guide to the Federal Budget
Outlays, appropriation, entitlements huh? If the fiscal year 2000 budget has you struggling with financial jargon, here's help.
A Citizen's Guide to the Federal Budget from the Office of Management and Budget offers users a summary of President Clinton's spending proposal. The online guide, which is also published each year with the White House Budget, includes a simple account of how the budget process works, where the money comes from, and the administration's plans for the first surplus in 30 years.
The site also offers a glossary and various charts and tables.
