Source National Journal
State DC
Year 1999
Publication Date March 13
Summary The National Journal reports on how and why billions of dollars get spent on unauthorized government programs each year. Legislation governing the operations of many federal programs including the Justice Department, Energy Department and the National Endowment for the Arts expired years ago and has not been reauthorized. It is much easier to keep funding these programs than to reauthorize them.
