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.

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.
