ABSTRACT
This article comments on the federal aid reform options proposed in the U.S. House in 1981. Based on a financial report entitled Impacts of Proposed Federal Budget revisions for the City of Columbus, it is concluded that the reforms introduced by the administration of President Ronald Reagan, if enacted and carried out, will reduce Federal funds coming to the country next year by $94,626,000. That is a reduction, as a percent of funding originally anticipated of 81 percent. Thus, one of the things that state governments will lose is a grant from the National Telecommunication and Information Administration of the Department of Commerce in the amount of $385,000. The grant would provide funding for a multi channel interconnect for the cable systems of states to permit simultaneous transmission of live or taped programming to all cable subscribers on several channels. Hence, that is why there is an absolute need for some sorting out of Federal programs and areas of participation. As well, there are other areas where reforms in the Federal system should be applied. Thus, it is proposed that the Federal government should not give any support to any cities except for overwhelming natural disaster.
