Should the United States Government Adopt a Biennial Budget?
The call for a biennial budget included in Vice President Gore's plan to "reinvent" government, entitled National Performance Review (NPR), is not a new one. During the past two decades five proposals for a two-year budget cycle have appeared in congressional bills and have been discussed in reports issued by government and independent agencies. In this working paper, Levy Institute Resident Scholar Charles J. Whalen summarizes these proposals, describes their differences, presents the arguments in support of and against a federal biennial budget, and assesses these arguments.
