WASHINGTON — The White House is one of a few federal agencies that would receive more money in fiscal 1987 under the budget proposed by President Reagan today.
Despite deep cuts proposed in virtually all programs, Reagan has suggested a modest increase for the executive office, giving it a total of $113.3 million, up from a projected $110.8 million this fiscal year.
The 1987 White House budget calls for a $500,000 hike in operating expenses for the executive residence, bringing the total to $4.9 million. But the vice president will get only $223,000--down from $380,000--to run his house, if Congress approves the President's budget proposal as is.
Salaries and expenses for White House employees comprise a big chunk of the President's budget in 1987, $25 million compared to $23.9 million in the previous year.
Expenses at the Office of Management and Budget, which helped Reagan prepare his budget document, are predicted to climb to $39.3 million, up from $36.7 million.
