- Full Report:
Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO commented on H.R. 4243, which would amend the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. The bill would exempt a number of student assistance programs from reductions under the act. GAO believes that, since the drafters of the act determined which accounts would be included among the list of those exempted and the proposed bill would expand the list to cover additional programs, the need for such an amendment was a policy determination best left to Congress.
