White House officials say an increase in such spending is being considered.
It actually calls for $1.4 billion a year in spending.
But other Republicans have made the case for an increase in spending.
The growth in spending is coming about for many reasons.
All this means $350 billion in new Federal spending from 1994 to 2000.
This policy will save over £1 billion in current spending by 2014-15.
All told, they will reach $7.5 billion in spending and at least 20,000 jobs.
The 1996 county budget provided for $948.8 million in spending.
At least one Republican said he could not support a new tax break if it meant any increase in spending.
Taxes increase about 1 percent for every $3.5 million in spending.
