OGC-85-11: Published: Jul 24, 1985. Publicly Released: Jul 24, 1985.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to the Impoundment Control Act of 1974, the President's eighth special message for fiscal year 1985 was submitted to Congress on March 22, 1985.
The special message proposed five new deferrals totalling $121,544,000 and three revised deferrals totalling $162,677,884. GAO believes that the proposed deferrals are in accordance with existing authority. GAO noted that the proposed deferrals related to the expenditure of appropriated funds from trust fund accounts. The Office of Management and Budget recently determined that the release of these funds would not be required unless Congress acted to specifically release them. GAO identified no other information, except as noted, that would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals.
