OGC-86-19: Published: May 28, 1986. Publicly Released: May 28, 1986.
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the President's sixth special message for fiscal year (FY) 1986, specifically three rescission proposals affecting the Department of Defense's budget authority for military procurement.
GAO found that: (1) two of the rescission proposals referred to the wrong public laws; and (2) the 45-day period of continuous session during which the funds may be withheld pending congressional consideration of a rescission bill would end on June 21, 1986. GAO identified no other information, except as noted, which would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals.
