KEY: "-" = No activity or a value of zero; "0" = Value too small to report; N/A = Data not available.

NOTES:
Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.

Numbers in parenthesis are negative values. The negative budget authority values are a result of offsetting collections. Offsetting collections are federal receipts from the public resulting from business-type activities, or transfers from other federal accounts. Such receipts are deducted from gross budget authority of a receiving program in the budget of the U.S. Government, instead of combining them with federal receipts. Thus, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) reports negative budget authority for some federal programs whenever offsetting collections exceed their eventual budget. This should be taken into consideration when examining total budget authority for specific federal programs.

Compensation for Air Carriers is a new addition to this table. Some of the numbers in this table may be different from those in the earlier report, because of revisions made to the historical data series
