GAO reported on the status of budget authority that the President proposed for rescission in his 73rd through 101st special impoundment messages, but for which Congress had not passed a rescission bill.

GAO found that the Office of Management and Budget made available for obligation all funds that the President had proposed for rescission, since Congress failed to complete action on a recission bill.
