June 10, 1997.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered 
                             to be printed


                                           The White House,
                                          Washington, June 9, 1997.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: I ask Congress to consider the enclosed requests for 
an FY 1997 supplemental appropriation and for FY 1998 budget 
amendments that will adjust my pending budget requests to be 
consistent with the recently negotiated Bipartisan Budget 
Agreement between the President and the Leadership of Congress.
    These proposals would:
    Restructure the Administration's request for emergency 
disaster funding. The pending FY 1998 $5.8 billion request for 
the contingent emergency reserve fund within Funds Appropriated 
to the President would be withdrawn. The FY 1998 funding 
request for the Federal Emergency Management Activity would be 
reduced by $2.4 billion and, instead, these funds are requested 
as an FY 1997 supplemental.
    Shift funding requested for fixed capital assets for the 
Department of Energy ($62 million), the Department of the 
Interior ($15 million), and the Army Corps of Engineers ($331 
million) from full, up-front funding in FY 1998 to advance 
appropriations as needed for obligation during FY 1999 through 
FY 2002.
    Increase funding for priority programs, including $700 
million for the Department of the Interior's Priority Federal 
Land Acquisitions and Exchanges, and $22 million for Amtrak. 
The obligation limitation for highway programs would be 
increased by $2 billion, and the obligation limitation for mass 
transit programs would be increased by $105 million.
    Pursuant to the Bipartisan Budget Agreement, shift funding 
for the Third Grade Literacy initiatives from mandatory to 
discretionary spending. A request for $260 million in 
discretionary funding is included in this transmittal.
    Make technical appropriations language adjustments required 
to implement user fees for the Department of Veterans Affairs 
and the Social Security Administration.
    In addition, the Bipartisan Budget Agreement assumes 
increased funding for National Defense over the levels proposed 
in my FY 1998 Budget. I urge the Congress to allocate the 
additional funds for the following defense priorities:
    Implementing the recommendations of the just completed 
Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), providing funding increases 
for the National Missile Defense Program, and countering 
threats from nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons.
    Funding modernization programs that are included in DOD's 
current Future Years Defense Program (FYDP).
    Assuring full funding for planned contingency operations in 
FY 1998 and for DOD's humanitarian and disaster relief 
programs.
    Eliminating recently identified shortfalls in Navy and Air 
Force air training operations.
    I hereby designate the $3,487,677,000 requested as an FY 
1997 supplemental appropriation for the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency as an emergency requirement pursuant to 
section 251(b)(2)(D)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.
    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 his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                William J. Clinton.
    Enclosure.
