               [Estimate No. 11, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                   Washington, DC, August 30, 2001.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests to make 
available previously appropriated contingent emergency funds 
for the Departments of Agriculture and the Interior. 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 
these requests would make available a total of $250 million for 
firefighting activities to combat wildfires in the Western 
States. These funds will be used for fire suppression 
activities, including firefighter mobilization and aerial and 
ground operations, as well as for rehabilitation of 
environmentally sensitive burned areas.
    Title I of P.L. 106-291, the Department of the Interior and 
Related Agencies Appropriations act, 2001, provided for $200 
million in contingent emergency funding for the Department of 
the Interior to address wildland firefighting needs, of which 
$100 million was designated as an emergency and released on 
January 19, 2001. This request would make available the 
remaining $100 million for emergency firefighting needs in the 
Western States.
    In addition, Title II of P.L. 106-291 provided $426 million 
in contingent emergency funding to the Department of 
Agriculture to address wildland firefighting needs, of which 
$276 million was designated as an emergency and released on 
January 19, 2001. this request would make available the 
remaining $150 million for emergency firefighting needs in the 
Western States.
    The transmittal also contains technical corrections to the 
Department of Agriculture materials transmitted on December 4, 
2000. The details of the corrections are listed in the 
enclosure to this letter.
    I have carefully reviewed these proposals and am satisfied 
that they are necessary at this time. I join the Secretaries of 
Agriculture and the Interior in recommending that you sign the 
enclosed letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
            Cordially,
                                              Sean O'Keefe,
                                                   Deputy Director.
    Enclosure.
