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1998 $5.8 billion request for the contingent emergency reserve fund within Funds Appropriated to the President would be withdrawn.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. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
