 May 22,       1990
 To The President of the Senate and the
 Speaker of the House of Representatives
 On April   18, 1990, the President        submitted to the Congress
 his fourth   special     impoundment message for fiscal    year 1990.
 This message     revises   the amounts of three deferrals
 previously    reported.      We have reviewed these deferrals    and
 found them to be in accordance        with the Impoundment Control
 Act, 2 U.S.C. $ 681, as amended.
 Enclosure     I provides    specific   information      on two of the
 revised    deferrals,    which we believe      will   be useful    to the
 Congress in its examination          of the message.       Enclosure    II
 provides    a list    of the deferrals      as reported    by the
 President.


                                                                              @
