Impoundment ControlPresident's Fourth Special Message for FY 1994 Gao ID: OGC-94-25 May 5, 1994
This letter reports on the status of budget authority that the President proposed for rescission in his fourth special impoundment message for fiscal year 1994. On February 11, 1994, Congress passed an emergency supplemental and rescission bill, which the President signed into law, that approved most of the proposed rescissions in the fourth special message and rescinded other budgetary resources. For the budget authority proposed for rescission in the fourth special message but which Congress did not approve in the rescission bill, the Office of Management and Budget informed GAO that all budget authority being withheld was released for obligation on April 20, 1994.
GAO found that: (1) Congress passed an emergency supplemental and rescission bill approving most of the rescissions proposed in the President's message and rescinded other budgetary resources; and (2) all of the budget authority withheld pursuant to the proposals was released for obligation on April 20, 1994.
