99-012                     WASHINGTON : 2001

                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, October 22, 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 $1.7 billion for emergency 
recovery and response and national security activities listed 
in the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of 
Management and Budget. As provided in Public Law 107-38, $1.6 
billion of these funds will be made available to agencies 15 
days from the date of this transmittal and $71.4 million will 
be made available to the Department of Defense immediately.
    These funds are in addition to the $7.2 billion that I 
previously authorized for transfer and will allow our 
Government to continue to address the consequences--both at 
home and abroad--arising from the terrorist attacks of 
September 11, 2001.
    On October 17th, I asked the Congress to provide $20 
billion in emergency funding for both defense and domestic 
needs related to the September attacks. I urge the Congress to 
enact these crucial resources without delay.
    The details of these actions 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. 20]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                  Washington, DC, October 19, 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. You have previously authorized the transfer of 
$7.2 billion from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer a 
total of $1.7 billion from the ERF to the Departments of 
Agriculture, Defense, State, and Transportation; International 
Assistance Programs; and the Broadcasting Board of Governors. 
The funding would address consequences of the attacks, 
including funding for: the use of National Guard personnel and 
additional sky marshals to provide increased airport security; 
food assistance programs in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well 
as other neighboring countries; economic assistance to 
Pakistan; counterterrorism activities; and national security 
operations.
    These requests represent the fourth round of transfers from 
the ERF to respond to urgent requirements arising from the 
September terrorist attacks. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, $1.6 
billion of these funds will be made available to agencies 15 
days after this designation is forwarded to Congress and $71.4 
million will be made available to the Department of Defense 
without further congressional review.
    Following an extensive review of individual agency 
proposals, on October 17th, you asked the Congress to provide 
$20 billion in emergency funding for additional immediate and 
near-term requirements. We will work with the Congress to 
ensure that these funds are enacted quickly so that recovery 
from the attacks can continue without interruption.
    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.
                                ------
