107th Congress, 1st Session - - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 107-116 FISCAL YEAR 2002 BUDGET AMENDMENTS __________ COMMUNICATION from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting REQUESTS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2002 BUDGET AMENDMENTS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> September 5, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed The White House, Washington, September 5, 2001. The Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sir: I asked the Congress to consider the enclosed requests for FY 2002 budget amendments for the Department of the Interior and the District of Columbia. The funds contained in this request will support counter-terrorism efforts associated with the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) September 29-30, 2001, meeting to be held in Washington, D.C. This meeting has been designated as a national special security event and the Administration has been working with the District of Columbia Government to address public safety concerns in our Nation's Capital surrounding this event. The Administration proposes to fund these important security initiatives within the additional discretionary resources provided in the budget resolution. In addition, in accordance with provisions of P.L. 106-554, I am making available $6.5 million of appropriated funds from the Counter-terrorism Fund of the Department of the Treasury. I designate the $6.5 million made available today as a requirement in accordance with section 251(b)(2)(A) 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 Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with his comments and observations. Sincerely, George W. Bush. Enclosure. [Estimate No. 12, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.] Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC, September 5, 2001. The President, The White House. Submitted for your consideration are requests for FY 2002 budget amendments for the Department of the Interior and the District of Columbia, as well as a request to make available previously appropriated contingent funds for the Department of the Treasury. The FY 2002 budget amendments included in this request would provide $1.2 million to the Department of the Interior's United States Police for increased workload expenses, and $16.0 million to the District of Columbia for reimbursement for expenses incurred in connection with providing security for the World Bank and International Monetary Fund September 2001 meetings, including increased workload expenses in the District of Columbia courts. The amendments would be offset within the additional discretionary resources provided in the budget resolution. In addition, P.L. 106-554, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001, provided funding contingent upon your submission of a finding to the Congress that designates the amount requested as meeting the requirements for the release of these funds. Your approval of this request would make available $6.5 million to support counter-terrorism efforts associated with national special security events. Specifically, this funding would support the U.S. Secret Service's and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' counter-terrorism efforts associated with unanticipated costs related to providing enhanced operational security and preparing for possible explosives and arson- related incidents. Resource requirements noted above represent estimates using the best available information to date. Actual expenditures may differ from the original level sought from the Counter- terrorism Fund. The Department of the Treasury will work with OMB to monitor this Fund to ensure that law enforcement bureaus are reimbursed for actual expenses and that any excess amounts are held in reserve to meet unforeseen needs related to counter-terrorist activities. I recommend that you designate the release of $6.5 million as required 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 these proposals and am satisfied that they are necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the heads of the affected Departments in recommending that you transmit the request to the Congress. Cordially, Sean O'Keefe, Deputy Director. Enclosure. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
