The George Washington Bicentennial Commission requested permission to charge admission fees for various events part of the celebration of the two hundredth anniversary of the birthday of George Washington. The Commission intended to use these admission fees to reimburse their appropriation for the money expended in the expenses of the events themselves.

GAO found nothing in the laws creating the Commission or in the appropriations for its expenses authorizating the Commission to accept donations for expenditure or otherwise to enlarge the amounts which Congress had appropriated.
