Revenue Sharing: Its Use by and Impact on State Governments. Department of the Treasury. Report to the Congress.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The results of the G.A.O.'s State-by-State investigation of the status of the $1.7 billion distributed to 50 State governments and the District of Columbia for 1972 are reported in this pamphlet. The investigation attempted to assess the actual impact of revenue sharing in such areas as tax reduction, changes in budget priorities, and increased funding for programs. The findings reflect the subjective assessments by knowledgeable State officials of the broad fiscal impact that revenue sharing funds would have on their States. (JF)
