The Clinton Administration has identified 254 obscure or outdated federal programs it wants to eliminate, The Washington Post reported today.
Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin mentioned the administration's list during recent congressional testimony. A handful of the 254 programs were listed in the 1998 budget, including prison literacy programs, several highway projects, and grants to research cranberry and blueberry disease.
