Abstract: The transition of federal tax policy from initial concept, through study design, analysis, and policy recommendations is traced for federal funding for Nongame Wildlife. The article brings together techniques that can be used to quantitatively assess the relative merits of alternative funding sources against criteria such as economic efficiency, ability to pay, and benefits received. It is shown that economists are often needed in the early phases of this process if relevant concepts from public finance theory are to influence initial selection offunding sources and alternative tax rates to be studied. Lastly, the interaction of differing political ideologies with analysis is displayed.
