Federal Budget Analysis on Children's Social Services Programs. FY 1985.
Capitol Publications, Inc., Arlington, VA.
To help subscribers better understand the federal budget, the editorial staff of "Report on Preschool Programs" has prepared this special analysis of the fiscal 1985 budget. The first section presents an overview of President Reagan's fiscal 1985 budget request and reports congressional reactions. Information focuses on the Social Services Block Grant, Head Start, Child Care Food Program, and other nutrition programs, child welfare services, education programs for disadvantaged students, child care tax credits, and tax exempt status for child care centers. The second section explains the congressional budget process--the entry point for congressional decisions on the budget and the first stop for many advocates seeking to influence the shape of the federal budget. The last section provides information on Senate and House Committees of the 98th Congress and on committee members and their aides involved in developing and overseeing federal programs related to children's social services.
