--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Due to the effects of the Credit Reform Act of 1990 on the measurement and classification of Federal credit activities, the discretionary outlays 
  for years prior to 1992 are not strictly comparable to those for 1992 and beyond. However, the discretionary outlays shown for 1992 are no more than  
  $1 billion higher (in nominal dollars) than they would have been if measured on the same (pre-credit reform) basis as the 1991 outlays.
