                         ordered to be printed
                               __________

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

                                           The White House,
                                         Washington, July 31, 2001.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: In accordance with provisions of P.L. 106-74, the 
Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban 
Development, and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act, 2000, 
I hereby request and make available $583,133,000 for the 
Disaster Relief program of the Federal Emergency Management 
Agency (FEMA).
    These funds will allow FEMA to continue providing 
assistance to victims of Tropical Storm Allison in several 
States, victims of recent storms and flooding in Montana, 
Texas, West Virginia, and Virginia, and other declared 
disasters. These funds also will be available to ensure that 
FEMA has resources on hand to provide timely responses to 
future disaster.
    I designate the funds 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 attached 
letter from the Director of Management and Budget. I concur 
with his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
               [Estimate No. 10, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                     Washington, DC, July 31, 2001.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to make 
available to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 
previously appropriated contingent emergency. The funding 
provided was made contingent upon your submission of a budget 
request to the Congress that includes designation of the amount 
requested as an emergency requirement. Your approval of this 
request would make available $583.1 million for disaster relief 
for previously declared disasters, including victims of 
Tropical Storm Allison in several States, victims of recent 
storms and flooding in Montana, Texas, West Virginia, and 
Virginia, and other declared disasters. These funds also would 
be available to ensure that FEMA has resources on hand to 
provide timely responses to future disasters.
    At the beginning of your Administration, $1.8 billion was 
available in contingent emergency appropriations for FEMA's 
disaster relief program. On April 12, 2001, you made $700 
million of this funding available to FEMA to address needs 
associated with the Seattle Earthquake and other disasters. On 
June 25, 2001, you made available $500 million to address the 
needs of States affected by Tropical Storm Allison and other 
disasters. You recently declared disasters in the States of 
Montana and Virginia--and a prior declaration for West Virginia 
has been expanded--for damage caused by storms and flooding. 
FEMA has been working with State and local authorities to 
provide assistance to the affected areas. This request would 
make available the remaining FY 2000 emergency funding for 
disaster relief activities associated with these recent 
disasters, including continuing response to Tropical Storm 
Allison, and other disaster relief activities.
    I recommend that you designate this request for $583.1 
million as an emergency 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 
Director of FEMA in recommending that you make the requested 
funds available by signing the enclosed letter to the Speaker 
of the House of Representatives.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

    Emergency Appropriations: Amounts Previously Appropriated Made 
                       Available by the President

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): Disaster 
    Relief..............................................    $583,133,000

    The FY 2000 Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and 
Urban Development, and Independent Agencies Appropriations Act 
included $2.5 billion in emergency funding for FEMA, contingent 
upon the President submitting a budget request to the Congress 
and designating the amount requested as an emergency 
requirement.
    At the beginning of this Administration, $1.8 billion was 
available in contingent emergency appropriations for FEMA's 
disaster relief program. On April 12, 2001, the President made 
$700.0 million of this funding available to FEMA to address 
needs associated with the Seattle Earthquake and other 
disasters. On June 25, 2001, the President made $500.0 million 
available to address the needs of States affected by Tropical 
Storm Allison and other disasters.
    The President recently declared disasters in the States of 
Montana and Virginia--and a prior declaration for West Virginia 
was expanded--for damage caused by storms and flooding. FEMA 
has been working with State and local authorities to provide 
assistance to the affected areas. This request would make 
available the remaining FY 2000 emergency funding of $583.1 
million for disaster relief activities associated with these 
recent disasters, including continuing response to Tropical 
Storm Allison, and other disaster activities.
