                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
89-012                     WASHINGTON : 2001

                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, December 30, 2000.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: In accordance with provisions of the Departments of 
Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001, as included in Public Law 
106-554, I hereby request and make available appropriations of 
$300,000,000 in budget authority for the Low Income Home Energy 
Assistance Program of the Department of Health and Human 
Services. These funds will enable the Department to address the 
needs of all States, territories, and Tribes due to continuing, 
high increases in home heating fuel costs.
    I designate the $300,000,000 made available today as an 
emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as 
amended.
    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. 28, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                 Washington, DC, December 30, 2000.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to make 
available $300.0 million in emergency appropriations for the 
Department of Health and Human Services. Your approval of this 
request would make available previously appropriated funds to 
the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to help 
all States, territories, and Tribes to address the needs of 
low-income households that are facing continuing, substantial 
increases in heating fuel prices, with a majority of funds 
distributed to the colder weather States of the Northeast and 
Midwest.
    The FY 2001 Departments of Labor, Health and Human 
Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
as included in Public Law 106-554, provided $300.0 million for 
LIHEAP, contingent upon the President submitting a budget 
request to the Congress and designating the entire amount 
requested as an emergency requirement. To date, you have not 
released any of these emergency funds.
    I recommend that you designate this request for $300.0 
million as an emergency funding requirement in accordance with 
section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. No further 
congressional action will be required.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services in recommending that you 
make the requested funds available by signing the enclosed 
letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
            Sincerely,
                                              Jacob J. Lew,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

    Emergency Appropriations: Amounts Previously Appropriated Made 
                       Available by the President

Department of Health and Human Services
    Admininstration for Children and Families: Low 
      income home energy assistance program.............    $300,000,000

    The Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, 
Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001, as 
included in Public Law 106-554, provided $300,000,000 for the 
Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, contingent upon the 
President submitting a budget request to the Congress and 
designating the entire amount requested as an emergency 
requirement.
    Of the $300,000,000 in contingent emergency appropriations 
provided by Public Law 106-554, no funds have been designated 
as an emergency requirement. At this time, the entire 
$300,000,000 in contingent funding is required to support the 
needs of low-income households throughout the United States 
arising from continuing, substantial increases in heating fuel 
prices. These funds will enable all States, territories, and 
Tribes to assist low-income households affected by price 
increases that have occurred throughout the country and will 
provide additional assistance to the States in proportion to 
their usage of heating oil, natural gas, and propane.
