The message reports four deferrals of budget authority and revises the amounts of two deferrals previously reported.

Enclosure I provides specific information with regard to three of the deferrals which we believe will be useful to the Congress in its examination of the message. Enclosure II provides a list of the deferrals as reported by the President.
