This document discusses GAO's views on proposed legislation entitled "A Bill for the relief of the Kurz and Root Company, Appleton, Wisconsin." The bill was intended to authorize the Secretary of the Treasury to pay $501,472 to Kurz and Root Company, in full settlement of all claims of such company against the United States for losses incurred as the result of improper delay in payment of sums owed by the United States pursuant to a settlement agreement between such company and the United States Marine Corps.
