- Full Report:
GAO reported on the status of budget authority that the President proposed for rescission in his fourth special message for fiscal year 1986.
The President proposed the rescission of $61,377,000 from three Department of Energy research and development accounts. Since Congress failed to pass a rescission bill, the Office of Management and Budget made the funds available for obligation. GAO identified no other information, except as noted, that would be useful to Congress in its consideration of the President's proposals.
