                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
99-012                     WASHINGTON : 2001

                                           The White House,
                                    Washington, September 28, 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 ``2001 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations 
Act for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the 
United States,'' today I have authorized transfers from the 
Emergency Response Fund totaling $1.8 billion for emergency and 
national security activities listed in the enclosed letter from 
the Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget.
    These funds are in addition to the $5.1 billion that I 
authorized for transfer on September 21, 2001, and will allow 
the Government to continue responding to immediate needs 
arising from the deadly attacks against our country.
    The details of this action 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. 17, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                Washington, DC, September 28, 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. On September 21st you authorized the initial 
transfers from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF) totaling $5.1 
billion.
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer 
$1.8 billion from the ERF to the Department of Defense, the 
Executive Office of the President, and the Legislative and 
Judicial Branches. The funding would address consequences of 
the attacks, including funding for security enhancements and 
initial crisis and recovery operations of the Department of 
Defense and other national security operations. No further 
congressional action is required for these transfers.
    We are continuing to work with the agencies to determine 
additional needs and will be forwarding recommendations on 
subsequent transfers from the ERF.
    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.
