Subject: Updated Rescissjon Statistics, Fiscal Years 1974-2009: 

This responds to your letter requesting that we transmit to Congress 
an updated package of our statistical data concerning rescissions 
proposed and enacted since the passage of the Impoundment Control Act 
of 1974. In response to your letter, we have updated our statistics 
regarding proposed and enacted rescissions through fiscal year 2009. 

Under the Impoundment Control Act, whenever the President proposes 
discretionary budget authority for rescission, he must transmit a 
special message to Congress detailing the amounts, reasons for, and 
effect of the proposed rescission. Congressional Budget and 
Impoundment Control Act, Pub. L. No. 93-344, title X, 88 Stat. 297, 
332 (July 12,1974), codjfjed at2 U.S.C.  682-688. Agencies may 
withhold from obligation budget authority proposed for rescission in a 
special message for up to 45 legislative days following submission of 
the special message. 2 U.S.C.  683(b). If Congress does not pass 
rescission legislation within this 45-day period, the budget authority 
must be released. Id The Impoundment Control Act provides a mechanism 
through which Congress may fast-track a vote on a special message. 2 
U.S.C.  688. 

We present our statistics in the two enclosed sets of tables, 
Enclosures 1 and 2. Enclosure 1 shows by fiscal year from 1974 to the 
present: (a) the aggregate number and amounts of rescissions proposed 
by the President, (b) the aggregate number and amount of those 
proposals enacted by Congress, (c) the aggregate number and amount of 
rescissions initiated by Congress, and (d) the total number of 
rescissions enacted and the total amount of budget authority rescinded 
by Congress, with totals for each category. Enclosure 2 shows by 
fiscal year from 1974 to the present, by presidential administration, 
the aggregate number and amount of rescissions proposed and enacted. 
The tables also display the number and amount of congressional 
rescissions by administration vvith totals for each category. Both 
tables include all rescissions enacted through September 30, 2009. 

To compile our statistics, we used the same methodology as we have for 
earlier data.[Footnote 1] We analyzed appropriations, supplemental 
appropriations, and other acts of Congress enacted in each fiscal year 
in order to identify rescissions, which are any legislative provisions 
that eliminate previously enacted and currently available budget 
authority. 

To ensure that we completely and accurately identify all rescissions, 
we consult with staff from the House of Representatives Committee on 
Appropriations, who are responsible for tracking rescissions. Our 
statistics differ somewhat from those of the committee staff, who 
utilize different criteria to identify certain enactments as 
rescissions. For example, if Congress "rescinds" funds from one 
account and in the next paragraph "appropriates" the same amount to a 
different account, we consider it reallocated budget authority, not a 
rescission. 

The statistics appear in the same format as earlier tables, although 
the current product includes adjustments for clerical and 
transcription errors contained in earlier reports.

[1] The President proposed "cancellations" and rescissions in his 
budgets for fiscal years 2007 and 2008 but did not submit a special 
message under the Impoundment Control Act. These were not rescission 
proposals under the Impoundment Control Act. For more information see 
B- 308011, Aug. 4, 2006. 

[2] The President sent a letter to Congress in October 2005 proposing 
the "cancellation" and rescission of $2.3 billion from 53 different 
programs. The letter was not a rescission proposal under the 
Impoundment Control Act. For more information, see B-307122, Mar. 2, 
2006. 

[3] The Military Construction Appropriations Act of 1991 approved 
certain rescissions proposed by the President in 1990 (41 days after 
the funds were released) for obligation under the Impoundment Control 
Act. Presidential rescission proposals R90-4, R90-5, and R90-10

[1] The President proposed "cancellations" and rescissions in his 
budgets for fiscal years 2007 and 2008 but did not submit a special 
message under the Impoundment Control Act. 

[2] The President sent a letter to Congress in October 2005 proposing 
the "cancellation" and rescission of $2.3 billion from 53 different 
programs. The letter was not a rescission proposal under the 
Impoundment Control Act. For more information, see B-307122, Mar. 2, 
2006. 

[3] All appropriations bills were completed by Congress prior to the 
end of calendar year 2000. Thus, no rescissions were initiated by 
Congress during the remainder of fiscal year 2001, which coincided 
with the President's first eight months in office.
