   October 9, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White house,
                                       Washington, October 5, 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 $195.9 million for emergency 
recovery and response activities listed in the enclosed letter 
from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.
    These funds are in addition to the $6.9 billion that I 
authorized for transfer last month and will allow the 
Government to continue to address the consequences arising from 
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
    The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed 
letter from the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget. I concur with his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
               [Estimate No. 18, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                   Washington, DC, October 5, 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 transfer 
of $5.1 billion from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF) and on 
September 28th you authorized the transfer of $1.8 billion.
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer 
$195.9 million from the ERF to the Departments of Agriculture, 
Defense, Justice, State, and Veterans Affairs; and the 
Executive Office of the President. The funding would address 
consequences of the attacks, including funding for: the 
creation of the Office of Homeland Security, which you recently 
announced; establishment of the Office of the Special Master to 
assist in the compensation of victims; internment costs for the 
burial in national cemeteries of veterans killed in the 
attacks; refugee and food assistance programs in Afghanistan 
and Pakistan, as well as other neighboring countries; and other 
urgent security-related activities.
    These requests represent the third round of transfers from 
the ERF to respond to urgent requirements arising from the 
devastating terrorist attacks. We will continue to work with 
the agencies to determine additional needs. No further 
congressional action is required for the transfers requested 
today and, upon your approval, the funds will be immediately 
available.
    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.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.
