- Full Report:
The President's 13th special message for fiscal year 1977, which was transmitted to the Congress pursuant to the Impoundment Control Act of 1974, included a rescission proposal of $850,000 for the National Transportation Safety Board; three deferrals proposed for the Departments of State, Treasury, and Transportation; and revisions to previously transmitted deferrals.
Based on the current congressional calendar, the 45-day period of continuous congressional session during which the funds proposed for rescission may be withheld, pending consideration of a rescission bill, will end September 25, 1977. Revisions to previously submitted deferrals of funds appropriated to the President for international security assistance and military assistance and to the Department of the Treasury for the State and Local Government Fiscal Assistance Trust Fund were proposed. New proposed deferrals were for funds for the Antirecession Financial Assistance Fund administered by the Department of the Treasury; the construction of metropolitan Washington airports through the Federal Aviation Administration; and the acquisition, operation, and maintenance of buildings abroad under the Special Foreign Currency Program of the Department of State. The information provided in the message is correct, and the actions being proposed have been clearly and accurately stated.
