Many of the steps involved in this annual legislative exercise are represented in this series. The dissension that frequently occurs over how much money should go where is well documented through correspondence, op-ed articles, and research files. Topics include the following: Agricultural Domestic Food programs, Commerce, Justice and Judiciary, District of Columbia, Interior, Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, Treasury, and the Postal Service.
