The Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sir: I ask the Congress to consider supplemental requests for FY 1996 appropriations for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Housing and Urban Development, and Transportation as well as the Small Business Administration and the Army Corps of Engineers. A total of $291 million is required--$163 million in requests for new budget authority and $128 million in contingent emergency budget authority--to assist the victims of Hurricanes Fran and Hortense. These requests can be funded within existing congressional 602(a) spending limits for FY 1996. The estimated Federal response to Hurricanes Fran and Hortense and the related flooding is expected to total over $1.5 billion, of which about half is needed specifically in North Carolina. Of this amount, over $1.2 billion will be paid out of existing funds, and $291 million is requested in this emergency supplemental. These figures do not include expected claims to be paid through the Federal crop and flood insurance programs, both of which have written substantial numbers of policies in the affected States. I hereby designate the following requests for FY 1996 supplemental appropriations as emergency funding requirements pursuant to section 251(b)(b)(D)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended: Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations: $20,000,000; Department of Agriculture, Farm Service Agency, Emergency Conservation Program: $20,000,000; Department of Defense--Civil, Army Corps of Engineers, Operations and Maintenance, General: $18,800,000; Department of Transportation, Federal Highways Administration, Federal-Aid Highways: $82,000,000; and Small Business Administration, Disaster Loans Program Account: $22,000,000. In addition, in accordance with the provisions of P.L. 104- 134, the Omnibus Consolidated Rescissions and Appropriations Act of 1996, I hereby make available appropriations totaling $33,000,000 in contract authority for the Department of Transportation. These previously appropriated funds that are hereby made available are for the Federal Highway Administration's Emergency Relief Program to reimburse States and territories for repairs made to Federal-aid routes damaged by Hurricanes Fran and Hortense and other disasters. I designate this $33 million as an emergency funding requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(D)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. Further, I ask the Congress to increase by $500 million the borrowing authority of the National Flood Insurance Program to cover losses from Hurricanes Fran and Hortense and future natural disasters. The details of these actions are set forth in the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with his comments and observations. Sincerely, William J. Clinton.
