GAO commented on whether the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) application of a rescission to the District of Columbia Courts appropriations was proper. The District of Columbia Courts stated that the law mandating the rescission applied to federal entities and questioned whether the rescission should apply to it, since the Courts and the federal government were separate legal entities. GAO held that OMB's application of the rescission to the Courts discretionary accounts was reasonable because the Courts were considered an instrumentality of the federal government.
