The Department of Agriculture requested reconsideration of a decision which concluded that national forest volunteer collection agents were ineligible for relief from liability for the physical loss of federal funds, since volunteers could not perform fee collection functions. GAO held that recently enacted legislation authorized the use of national forest volunteers at designated areas to sell permits and collect fees authorized or established under statutory authority. Accordingly, the decision was overruled.
