In his seventh special message for fiscal year 1980, the President proposed 53 rescissions totaling $1,472.7 million in budget authority that had been made available for various programs and agencies. For rescission proposals R80-5 through R80-57, the 45-day period during which funds may be withheld for congressional action ended on June 4, 1980, without such action. The budget authority covered by these rescission proposals was apportioned by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to the proper agencies for allotment to the programs involved. The executive branch may again request that Congress rescind these funds, but the second request does not trigger a new 45-day withholding period. OMB did withhold that portion of the funds included in R80-36 which had not been part of the earlier rescission proposal. Those funds and R80-2A have now been made available for obligation in the same manner as the funds involved in the other rescission proposals contained in the President's seventh special message.
