Html 21 INTRODUCTION lion, when a discount rate of 5 percent is assumed. SCFA’s 1998 budget represents about 1 percent of this spending. In fiscal year 1999, SCFA’s budget was boosted to $25 million, but this is still a relatively small amount compared to the average cost of cleaning up a site. Further, the large budget swings have interfered with program planning.
