In theory, the budget process provides multiple opportunities to articulate claims and ration resources in a methodical and rational manner. However, the American federal budget process of the 1980's was, in reality, far different from the procedural tranquility theory might suggest. This thesis studies the perceived need for reform of the federal budget process. It examines the proposals of the Executive Branch, of the Legislative Branch, and of selected experts on budget theory. The process, as enacted in the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990, is examined. The enactments are compared with the proposals for procedural reform and an assessment of which faction was in closest agreement is provided.
