 September 17, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                    Washington, September 12, 2001.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: Yesterday, evil and despicable acts of terror were 
perpetrated against our fellow citizens. Our way of life, 
indeed our very freedom, came under attack. Our first priority 
is to respond swiftly and surely. We need to do so in a way 
that will make Americans proud, especially those heroes who are 
struggling so valiantly to deal with yesterday's tragedy.
    Immediate steps are being taken to protect our citizens at 
home and around the world. I implemented our Government's 
emergency response plans, and the functions of our Government 
continue without interruption. I have directed the full 
resources of our intelligence and law enforcement communities 
to find those responsible and to bring them to justice.
    Now Congress must act. I ask the Congress to immediately 
pass and send to me the enclosed request for $20,000,000,000 in 
FY 2001 emergency appropriations to provide resources to 
address the terrorist attacks on the United States that 
occurred on September 11, 2001, and the consequences of such 
attacks. Passing this supplemental appropriations bill without 
delay will send a powerful signal of unity to our fellow 
Americans and to the world. If additional resources are 
necessary, I will forward another request for additional 
funding.
    I designate the entire amount as an emergency requirement 
pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 13, 107th Cong. 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                               Washington, DC., September 12, 2001.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request for 
$20,000,000,000 in FY 2001 emergency funding to respond to the 
consequences of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the 
United States.
    The magnitude of these tragedies demands that these 
emergency funds be provided as quickly as possible to address 
the consequences of the disaster. This amount of funding will 
address needs resulting from yesterday's events. If additional 
resources are necessary beyond the amount of this request, I 
will prepare for your approval a request for additional 
funding. To keep Congress fully informed, we will report to 
Congress on a quarterly basis regarding the obligation of these 
funds.
    I recommend that you designate this request 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.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.

                   Executive Office of the President
