The President's 11th special message for fiscal year 1978 pursuant to the Impoundment Control Act of 1974 proposed the rescission of $10.8 million in annual budget authority that had been provided to the Department of Labor. The funds were appropriated for the Employment and Training Administration's implementation of the Community Service Employment Program for Older Americans. The total amount lapsed on September 30, 1978, because none of these funds had been obligated as of that date. The funds lapsed prior to the expiration of the 45-day period for congressional consideration of the rescission proposal because the appropriation act was not passed until very late in the fiscal year.
