   August 4, 1998.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed


                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, August 3, 1998.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: As required by Section 5 of the Commodity Credit 
Corporation Act (15 U.S.C. 714c) and the Government Corporation 
Control Act (31 U.S.C., Chapter 91), I hereby notify Congress 
of budget program revisions for the Commodity Credit 
Corporation (CCC) for FY 1998 and FY 1999. The revisions, 
totaling up to $600 million, would support the purchase and 
donation of domestic wheat and other surplus commodities.
    For FY 1998, the FY 1999 Budget estimate for CCC of $8,814 
million in net outlays would be increased by $150 million, to 
$8,964 million. The FY 1999 estimate of $8,935 million in net 
outlays would be increased by up to $450 million, to $9,385 
million.
    The details of this action 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.
    Enclosure.


                [Estimate No. 11, 105th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, August 3, 1998.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request for FY 1998 
and FY 1999 budget revisions totaling up to $600 million for 
the purchase and donation of domestic wheat and other surplus 
commodities.
    In accordance with Section 5 of the Commodity Credit 
Corporation Act (15 U.S.C., 714c) and the Government 
Corporation Control Act (31 U.S.C., Chapter 91), this request 
would constitute an official revision of the budget program for 
the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) for FY 1998 and FY 1999. 
For FY 1998, the FY 1999 Budget estimate for CCC of $8,814 
million in net outlays would be increased by $150 million, to 
$8,964 million. OMB projects that the FY 1999 estimate of 
$8,935 million in net outlays would be increased by up to $450 
million, to $9,385 million.
    The funds will be used to implement the plan you announced 
on July 18, 1998. More than 80 million bushels of U.S. wheat, 
wheat flour, and possibly other commodities will be purchased 
by CCC and donated overseas to relieve hunger in needy areas of 
the world and to strengthen domestic crop prices. The Secretary 
of Agriculture has found wheat to be in surplus at this time, 
and OMB concurs in his determination. The current estimated 
funding needs of up to $600 million in FYs 1998 and 1999 will 
allow the purchase of commodities, the ocean freight, and the 
internal distribution of the food in the destination countries. 
The recipient countries and allocations are being determined by 
the Administration and international aid organizations, and 
will likely include Indonesia and Sudan. The current cost 
estimates have changed since mid-July because of the 
substantially higher projected cost for internal food 
distribution in the recipient countries. These costs will be 
refined, and possibly reduced, as a firm donation plan is 
developed with the United Nation's World Food Program and 
private voluntary organizations through consultations now 
underway.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Secretary of Agriculture in recommending that you approve the 
budget program revisions by signing the enclosed letter to the 
Speaker of the House of Representatives. No further 
congressional action will be required.
            Sincerely,
                                            Jacob J. Lew, Director.
    Enclosure.
                                ------                                


   Notification Required by the Commodity Credit Corporation and the 
                   Government Corporation Control Act

    In accordance with Section 5 of the Commodity Credit 
Corporation Act (15 U.S.C. 714c) and the Government Corporation 
Control Act (31 U.S.C., Chapter 91), the President has revised 
the budget program for the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) 
for FY 1998 and FY 1999. For FY 1998, the FY 1999 Budget 
estimate for CCC of $8,814 million in net outlays would be 
increased by $150 million, to $8,964 million. The FY 1999 
estimate of $8,935 million in net outlays would be increased by 
up to $450 million, to $9,385 million.
    The funds will be used to implement the plan the President 
announced on July 18, 1998. More than 80 million bushels of 
U.S. wheat, wheat flour, and possibly other commodities will be 
purchased by CCC and donated overseas to relieve hunger in 
needy areas of the world and to strengthen domestic crop 
prices. The Secretary of Agriculture has found wheat to be in 
surplus at this time, and OMB concurs in his determination. The 
current estimated funding needs of up to $600 million in FYs 
1998 and 1999 will allow the purchase of commodities, the ocean 
freight, and the internal distribution of the food in the 
destination countries.
