[Comments on Operation of Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation With Appropriated Funds]
B-217578, Oct 16, 1986
The Chief Counsel of the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation asserted that, because the agency did not receive funds appropriated annually from Congress, it did not receive appropriated funds. GAO has taken the position that the Corporation is subject only to restrictions on its use of appropriations that can be directly implied from its enabling legislation, that are included in appropriation acts applicable to the Corporation, or that are made specifically applicable to government corporations.
