 REPORT OF THE CANCELLATION OF DISCRETIONARY BUDGET AUTHORITY (97-75)--
   MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT RECEIVED DURING THE ADJOURNMENT OF THE 
                             SENATE--PM 82

  Under the authority of the order of the Senate of January 7, 1997, 
the Secretary of the Senate on November 20, 1997, received a message 
from the President of the United States, together with an accompanying 
report; referred jointly, pursuant to section 1022 of the Congressional 
Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974, to the Committee on 
Appropriations, and to the Committee on the Budget.

                                              The White House,

                                Washington, DC, November 20, 1997.
     Hon. Albert Gore, Jr.,
     President of the Senate,
     Washington, DC.
       Dear Mr. President: In accordance with the Line Item Veto 
     Act, I hereby cancel the dollar amounts of discretionary 
     budget authority, as specified in the attached reports, 
     contained in the ``Department of the Interior and Related 
     Agencies Appropriations Act, 1998'' (H.R. 2107). I have 
     determined that the cancellation of these amounts will reduce 
     the Federal budget deficit, will not impair any essential 
     Government functions, and will not harm the national 
     interest. This letter, together with its attachments, 
     constitutes a special message under section 1022 of the 
     Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974, as 
     amended.
           Sincerely,
     William J. Clinton.

                          ____________________
