Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the implications of the decision in Immigration and Naturalization Service v. Chadha on the validity of the Impoundment Control Act or the appropriations process. GAO stated that the Chadha decision, which altered the view of the legislative veto, did not necessarily vitiate the procedural authority of the act, except in instances involving clear restrictions on Presidential authority through congressional inaction or resolutions.
