Budget and Spending:
Comments on the President's Fourth Special Message for Fiscal Year 1991
OGC-91-9: Published: Jun 11, 1991. Publicly Released: Jun 11, 1991.
GAO reviewed one proposed rescission of budget authority included in the President's fourth special message for fiscal year (FY) 1991.
GAO noted that: (1) since the Office of Management and Budget erroneously scored two provisions in the Dire Emergency Supplemental Appropriation Bill for FY 1991 as new budget authority, no mid-session sequester was necessary; and (2) the proposed rescission was not needed. GAO identified no other information, except as noted, that would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposal.
