On November 1, 1993, the President sent to Congress his second special impoundment message for fiscal year 1994. The message reports 37 proposed rescissions of budget authority affecting the Defense Department and a variety of federal agencies. GAO reviewed the proposed rescissions and found them to be in accordance with the Impoundment Control Act. This report provides detailed information on the proposed rescissions.

GAO found that: (1) the proposed rescissions are in accordance with the Impoundment Control Act; and (2) the funds proposed for rescission are available for obligation unless Congress completes action on a rescission bill within 45 days after receipt of the rescission proposal. GAO also provided specific information on the rescissions that should be useful to Congress in its consideration of the proposal.
