TITLE II—ANTIRECESSION PROVISIONS FINDINGS OF FACT AND DECLARATION OF POLICY

42 USC 6721.

SEC. 201. FINDINGS.—The Congress finds— (1) that State and local governments represent a significant segment of the national economy whose economic health is essential to national economic prosperity; (2) that present national economic problems have imposed considerable hardships on State and local government budgets; (3) that those governments, because of their own fiscal diifficulties, are being forced to take budget-related actions which tend to undermine Federal Government efforts to stimulate the economy; (4) that efforts to stimulate the economy through reductions in Federal Government tax obligations are weakened when State and local governments are forced to increase taxes; (5) that the net effect of Federal Government efforts to reduce unemployment through public service jobs is substantially limited if State and local governments use federally financed public service employees to replace regular employees that they have been forced to lay off; (6) that efforts to stimulate the construction industry and reduce unemployment are substantially undermined when State and local governments are forced to cancel or delay the construction of essential capital projects; and (7) that efforts by the Federal Government to stimulate the economic recovery will be substantially enhanced by a program of emergency Federal Government assistance to State and local governments to help prevent those governments from taking budgetrelated actions which undermine the Federal Government efforts to stimulate economic recovery.
