                                           The White House,
                                    Washington, September 21, 2001.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In accordance with provisions of Public 
Law 107-38, the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for 
Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the United 
States, FY 2001, today I have authorized transfers from the 
Emergency Response Fund totaling $5.1 billion for emergency 
recovery and response and national security activities listed 
in the enclosed letter from the Deputy Director of the Office 
of Management and Budget.
    Our country mourns for the loss of life and for those whose 
lives have been so deeply affected by this despicable act of 
terror. None of us could have envisioned the barbaric acts of 
these terrorists. These funds will allow Federal agencies to 
continue providing immediate assistance to victims of the 
deliberate and deadly attacks against our country.
    The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed 
letter from the Deputy Director of Management and Budget. I 
concur with his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
               [Estimate No. 15, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                Washington, DC, September 21, 2001.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests to make 
available by transfer previously appropriated funds provided in 
P.L. 107-38, the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for 
Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the United 
States, FY 2001. As required by that Act, on September 18th you 
designated the $40 billion provided as an emergency funding 
requirement.
    Your approval of these requests would transfer $5.1 billion 
from the Emergency Response Fund to the Departments of 
Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, the 
Interior, Justice, Labor, State, Transportation, and the 
Treasury; the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA); 
General Services Administration; International Assistance 
Programs; Small Business Administration; Commodity Futures 
Trading Commission; District of Columbia; Export-Import Bank of 
the United States; National Transportation Safety Board; the 
Executive Office of the President; and the Legislative and 
Judicial Branches. The funding would provide assistance to the 
victims of the attacks and would address other consequences of 
the attacks, including funding for: debris removal, search and 
rescue efforts, and victim assistance efforts of FEMA; 
emergency grants to disaster-affected metropolitan area health 
providers; investigative expenses of the FBI; increased airport 
security and sky marshals; initial repair of the Pentagon; 
evacuation of high threat embassies abroad; additional funding 
for the Small Business Administration disaster loan program; 
and initial crisis and recovery operations of the Department of 
Defense and other national security operations.
    These requests represent the initial transfers from the 
Emergency Response Fund to respond swiftly to urgent 
requirements and to alleviate human endangerment and suffering. 
We will continue to work with the agencies to determine 
additional needs. No further congressional action is required 
for these initial transfers.
    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 and agencies in recommending 
your approval of the transfers described in the enclosure.
            Cordially,
                                              Sean O'Keefe,
                                                   Deputy Director.
    Enclosure.
