GAO reviewed the status of the Urban Mass Transportation Administration's budget authority that was proposed for rescission in the President's third special message for fiscal year 1986.

GAO found that: (1) the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act requires that funds proposed for rescission be made available for obligation unless Congress completes action on the rescission bill within 45 days; (2) although Congress disapproved a previous deferral of the same budget authority, the President provided no new basis to justify the reimpoundment; and (3) since the 45-day period ended before Congress passed a rescission bill, all the funds proposed for rescission were made available for obligation.
