Relocation Deadline Provision Contained in the 1996 Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Act

Headnotes: 

Requirement in the Appropriations Act that the United States Information Agency relocate the Office of Cuba Broadcasting to south Florida by a date almost a month before the Act was signed into law constitutes a technical or typographical error, and USIA is entitled to obligate the funds appropriated in the provision, even though it is unable to turn back the clock and comply with the provision’s literal deadline.
