The session included an overview of decisions issued from September 2023 to May 2024, and discussions on working with GAO under GAO's new protocols for legal decisions and opinions; revolving funds and government corporations; the recording statute and bona fide needs rule; impoundments; the role of executive agencies and appropriations attorneys during a new presidential term; the purpose statute; and GAO's tracking of community project funding and congressionally directed spending. The forum materials include a document, created for the forum, that provides appropriations law resources for political appointees.
