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.
