Since 1978, the Essential Air Service (EAS) program has subsidized air service to eligible communities that would otherwise not have scheduled service. The cost of this program has risen as the number of communities being served and subsidies to air carriers have increased. At the same time, the number of carriers providing EAS service has declined. Given continuing concerns over the EAS program's long-term prospects, this report reviews: (1) the characteristics and current status of the EAS program; (2) factors affecting the program's ability to provide air service; (3) options for revising t

The SSI program's vulnerability to fraud and abuse, and the magnitude of overpayments involved, were primary factors in the decision to designate SSI a high-risk program in 1997 and to begin to document the underlying causes of long-standi
