Discretionary spending by the Education Department would rise nearly $2.5 billion, or 5.9 percent, under President Bush's proposed fiscal 2002 budget. Actual spending levels are generally higher than budget-authority levels. That is because such spending includes some "advance" appropriations—used to get around budget caps set in 1997—not reflected in the budget authority.
