<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


  November 6, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, November 5, 2001.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In accordance with provisions of P.L. 
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 $902 million for emergency 
recovery and response and national security activities listed 
in the enclosed letter from the Deputy Director of the Office 
of Management and Budget. As provided in P.L. 107-38, $900 
million of these funds will be made available to agencies 15 
days from the date of this transmittal and $2.3 million will be 
made available to the Department of the Treasury immediately.
    These funds are in addition to the $8.8 billion that I 
previously authorized for transfer and will allow our 
Government to continue to address the consequences arising from 
the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
    I urge the Congress to enact without delay the $20 billion 
in critical defense and domestic needs that I requested on 
October 17th. My Administration does not intend to seek 
additional supplemental funding for either domestic or defense 
needs for the remainder of this session of Congress.
    The details of these actions 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. 21, 107th Congress, 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                  Washington, DC, November 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. You have previously authorized the transfer of 
$8.8 billion from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer a 
total of $902 million from the ERF to the Departments of 
Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, and the 
Treasury; and the United States Postal Service. The funding 
would address consequences of the attacks, including funding 
for: grants to New York City businesses affected by the 
September 11th attacks; compensation for the Metropolitan 
Washington Airports Authority and its concessionaires for the 
Federal closure and reduced flight schedule at Reagan National 
Airport; the purchase of health and environmental equipment, 
including irradiation machines for the United States Postal 
Service; and National Guard personnel to enhance security at 
U.S.-Canadian ports of entry.
    These requests represent the fifth round of transfers from 
the ERF to respond to urgent requirements arising from the 
September terrorist attacks. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, $900 
million of these funds will be made available to agencies 15 
days after this designation is forwarded to Congress and $2.3 
million will be made available immediately to the Department of 
the Treasury without further congressional review.
    Following an extensive review of individual agency 
proposals, on October 17th, you asked the Congress to provide 
$20.0 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.
            Cordially,
                                              Sean O'Keefe,
                                                   Deputy Director.
    Enclosure.

potential loss of thousands of businesses and private sector 
jobs from Lower Manhattan.

Department of Transportation:
    Federal Aviation Administration Operations..........     $25,000,000

    These funds will compensate the Metropolitan Washington

for the loss of landing fees, passenger facility charges, rent, 
and sales.

    Service Fund........................................    $175,000,000

    These resources include: $100 million for an initial

services, and public education material.
