The Future of Government Funding for Persons with Disabilities: Some Key Factors.
Ross, E. Clarke
Word from Washington Analysis, v9 n3 Jun 1980
The paper identifies and discusses key factors associated with government funding for disabled individuals. An introductory section traces the growth of public expenditures in recent years. Five key factors affecting government funding are examined (sample subtopics in parentheses): state government tax and spending limits (Proposition 13 and the Jarvis II Initiative); U.S. Constitutional revisions to balance budgets (spending limit formula); impact of Congressional budget control; renewals, reauthorizations, and appropriations; and tax expenditures. Recommendations are made to monitor or deal with each key factor. The author predicts substantial budget restraint for such categorical programs as vocational rehabilitation and independent living services. (CL)
