         B-237297.17

         August        9,   1990
         To the President of the Senate and the
         Speaker of the House of Representatives
         On June 28, 1990, the President           submitted     to the Congress his
         seventh      special   impoundment message for fiscal         year 1990.
         This message reports         eight proposed    rescissions     of budget
         authority.&/         We have reviewed   these proposals       and found them
         to be in accordance         with the Impoundment Control        Act, 2 U.S.C.
         ยง 681, -et seq.,       as amended.
         Enclosure   I provides    specific      information    on one of the
         proposals  which we believe        will    be useful   to the Congress in
         its examination     of the message.          Enclosure   II provides a list
         of the proposals     as reported      by the President.

COMMENTS ON THE SEVENTH SPECIAL         MESSAGE



DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE,     MILITARY


R90-8                                 Department  of the Army

                                      Amount Proposed for Rescission:
                                      $12,664,000
                                      218/20702    219/30702

According   to OMB and Department    of Defense officials    total
budgetary   resources  are $108,443,699   and not $187,425,699       as
shown in the message.     Fiscal  year 1990 budget authority       of
$78,982,000    should not have been included    in the message
since the amount proposed to be rescinded       only affects    fiscal
years 1988 and 1989 funds.
