To help strengthen aviation security after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Congress expanded the size and mission of the Fed. Air Marshal Service and located the Service within the newly created Transport. Sec. Admin. (TSA). Between 11/2001 and 7/2002, the Service grew from fewer than 50 air marshals to thousands, and its mission expanded to include the protection of domestic as well as international flights. In 3/2003, the Service, with TSA, merged into the new Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). This report looked at operational and mgmt. control issues that emerged during the rapid expansion

Conflicting budget priorities of the Pres. and Congress accentuate the tensions between the exec. and legis. branches inherent in the fed. budget process. Impoundment, whereby a Pres. withholds or delays the spending of funds appropriated by Congress, provides a mechanism for budgetary control during budget implementation in the exec. branch; but Congress retains oversight responsibilities. Many Pres. have called for an item veto, or expanded impoundment authority, to provide them with greater control over fed. spending.

About 5% of all U.S. cropland is currently fertilized with livestock manure. Expanded environmental regulation through nutrient management plans will likely lead to wider use of manure on cropland, at higher production costs, but with only modest impacts on commodity demand, or farm structure. While current use is limited, expanded gov¿t. support could lead to a substantial increase in manure use as a feedstock. However, current energy processes are unlikely to compete with fertilizer uses of manure, because they leave fertilizer nutrients as residues, in more marketable form, and because man
