GAO reviewed the status of budget authority of a deferral of $8.5 million appropriated for the acquisition of a replacement Maritime Administration training vessel, which the President initially proposed in his third special message for fiscal year 1986.

GAO found that: (1) the budget authority for the replacement vessel was improperly withheld; (2) Congress had disapproved a previous deferral of the $8.5 million, and the President provided no new basis to justify the reimpoundment; and (3) since the deferral was not permitted under the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act, the $8.5 million has been made available for obligation.
