On April 21, 1983, the President's seventh special message for fiscal year 1983 was transmitted to Congress pursuant to the Impoundment Control Act of 1974. The special message proposed four new deferrals totaling $31,441,000 and a revision to a previously reported deferral which increased the amount deferred by $6 million.
GAO reviewed the seventh special message and stated that it could not identify any additional information that would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals. GAO believes that the proposed deferrals are in accordance with existing authority.
