The Hoover Commission, in 1949, recommended that categorical grants be "classified and systematized" and that a "system of grants be established based upon broad categories---such as hlghways, education, public assistance, and public health-- as contrasted with the present system of extreme fragmentation." That was in 1949, but each major attempt at consolidation, decen- tralization was met with congressional skepticism and defeated. President Reagan resurrected the idea during the 1976 Presidential cam- paign when he proposed turning $90 billion worth of domestic programs back to state and local governments. The idea continued to germinate and, as more and more people became familiar with the objectives and pur- pose, block grants became a fundamental plank of the 1980 revisions designed to address the single most detrimental force affecting our economy -- inflation," he added. One of the most fun- damental, yet controversial components of the economic recovery package is President strain on previously funded state programs. However, the block grant program will absorb some of this strain by giving state officials the needed flexibility in allocating their federal dollars. Local and state authorities, not federal officials, under the block grant proposal will be able to determine which rograms should receive full nding and which should be reduced," he said. "In order to efficiently administer the block grant program state policy makers and administrators must fully understand the importance and potential of the concept," Gregg said. Carlson amwered the following questions about block grants: Q: In general, what are the In effect, block grants will eliminate the power struc- tures constructed within the bureaucracy over the past two decades; fiefdoms which have been constructed at the ex- pense of the American tax- payer and, unfortunately, at the expense of legitimate recipients of assistance. 5.

The Hoover Commission, in 1949, recommended that categorical grants be "classified and systematized" and that a "system of grants be established based upon broad categories---such as hlghways, education, public assistance, and public health-- as contrasted with the present system of extreme fragmentation." That was in 1949, but each major attempt at consolidation, decen- tralization was met with congressional skepticism and defeated. President Reagan resurrected the idea during the 1976 Presidential cam- paign when he proposed turning $90 billion worth of domestic programs back to state and local governments. The idea continued to germinate and, as more and more people became familiar with the objectives and pur- pose, block grants became a fundamental plank of the 1980 revisions designed to address the single most detrimental force affecting our economy -- inflation," he added. One of the most fun- damental, yet controversial components of the economic recovery package is President strain on previously funded state programs. However, the block grant program will absorb some of this strain by giving state officials the needed flexibility in allocating their federal dollars. Local and state authorities, not federal officials, under the block grant proposal will be able to determine which rograms should receive full nding and which should be reduced," he said.
