The Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sir: The United States and its allies have begun the difficult task of bringing peace to Bosnia. Under the agreement brokered by the United States that resulted in the Dayton Peace Accords, I have committed our troops to a multinational force in Bosnia and Herzegovina and pledged U.S. help in multinational civilian peace implementation programs. I ask Congress to consider expeditiously the enclosed requests for FY 1996 supplemental appropriations in support of these efforts. These requests seek $620 million for Department of Defense operations associated with the NATO-led Bosnia Peace Implementation Force (IFOR) and Operation Deny Flight, and $200 million for civilian implementation of the Dayton Peace Accords. The security and success of the IFOR mission go hand-in- hand with the implementation of all aspects of the Dayton Peace Accords. Our planned civilian programs will not only underpin the Dayton Accords but also support IFOR and American troops, enhancing their security as they perform their mission and facilitating their safe and smooth withdrawal upon its completion. I hereby designate the amounts requested as emergency requirements pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(D)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. Nevertheless, the requested increases in budget authority are fully offset by rescissions from funds available to the Defense Department, as proposed in the accompanying Special Message. The details of these requests are set forth in the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with her comments and observations. Sincerely, William J. Clinton. Enclosure. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
