    Comptroller General
    of the United States
     Washington,   D.C. 20548



      B-237297.16

      August       9,    1990
      To the President of the         Senate and the
      Speaker of the House of         Representatives

      On June 26, 1990, the President      submitted  to the Congress
      his sixth  special   impoundment message for fiscal     year 1990.
      This message revises    the amounts of two deferrals     previously
      reported.   We have reviewed    these deferrals   and found them
      to be in accordance    with the Impoundment Control    Act,
      2 U.S.C. S 681, as amended.
      Enclosure    I provides    specific      information      on the two revised
      deferrals    which we believe       will    be useful     to the Congress in
      its examination      of the message.          Enclosure     II provides  a
      list   of the revised    deferrals       as reported      by the President.
