Fiscal Amendments of 1976. Report Together with Additional, Supplemental, and Minority Views Including Cost Estimate and Comparison of the Congressional Budget Office, to Accompany H.R. 13367. 94th Congress, Second Session. Report 94-1165, Part 1.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House.
H.R. 13367, the Fiscal Assistance Amendments of 1976, is designed to extend and amend the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972, commonly known as the "revenue sharing" Act. This program is intended to provide general financial assistance to help support public services that are the responsibility of the states and their general purpose units of local government. Since this assistance is not restricted to any particular services or functions, the Committee on Government Operations has included provisions intended to assure that citizens are afforded an opportunity to participate in the determination of the use of these funds by their state and local governments. The committee has also included specific provisions to assure that the funds are expended without discrimination, and that financial accounts are examined by outside auditors. This legislation, like the 1972 Act, establishes a program of limited duration so Congress may decide in the light of further experience and new developments whether or not it should be continued.
