Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed proposed legislation which would amend the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act by adding certain veterans' benefit programs to the list of those exempted from reductions required by the act. GAO found that, since the drafters of the statute made case-by-case determinations as to which accounts should be exempt from the requirements of the act, the need for such an amendment is a policy decision which is best left to Congress.
