THE FEDERAL BUDGET FOR FISCAL 1964--A SbUiARY
The Federal budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1964, as sub-
mitted to Congress by President Kennedy on January 17
- places, for the first time, major emphasis on the presentation of the
budget on a consolidated cash basis, which covers Federal activities financed
through trust funds as well as administrative budget totals previously empha-
sized.
- estimates the net revenue loss in fiscal 1964 resulting from the Presi-
dent's forthcoming tax proposals at $2.7 billion, but leaves the specifics
and details to be presented later this month in a special tax message.
- proposes all-time record high expenditure total--c)98.8 billion on an
administrative budget basis (and $122.5 billion on a cash budget basis)--
exceeding even the peak World War II expenditure.
- forecasts administrative budget receipts totaling $86.9 billion in fis-
cal 1964, after taking into account the President's tax program  (cash budg-
et receipts from the public are estimated at $112.2 billion in fiscal 1964).
- forecasts an administrative budget deficit of $11.9 billion in the next
fiscal year; the combined deficits for the three fiscal years, 1962-64, total
$27.1 billion. The cash budget deficit is estimated at 3'10.3 billion.
- estimates a Federal debt of $315.6 billion by the end of fiscal 1961, and
requests further increases in the statutory debt limit.
- again revises the estimates of receipts and expenditures for the current
fiscal year (1963); on an administrative budget basis receipts are now esti-
mated at -85.5 billion in this year, expenditures at ;94.3 billion, with a
deficit of 98.8 billion (as compared to the deficit forecast of $7.8 billion
released in mid-November, 1962).
