Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO commented on S. 2198, which would provide that benefits payable in calendar year 1987 under programs listed in the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 would not be subject to suspension or reduction under a Presidential order. GAO noted that the act includes a number of exemptions, exceptions, limitations, and special rules to protect certain accounts from the automatic reduction process. GAO determined that the need for such an amendment is a policy determination best left to Congress.
