ABSTRACT
This article reports that according to the U.S. president, George W. Bush, the budget plan that he will deliver to Congress in February 2005 for fiscal 2006 will hold down spending for non-defense and non-homeland security related initiatives in an effort to shrink the nation's ballooning deficit.
