  November 13, 2001.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, November 9, 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 $9.3 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, $1.7 
billion will be made available immediately and $7.5 billion of 
these funds will be made available 15 days from the date of 
this transmittal.
    These funds are in addition to the $9.7 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.
    With this action, I have transferred all but $1 billion of 
the funds that were made available to me. It is now time for 
the Congress to act without delay on the final $20 billion in 
critical defense and domestic needs that I requested on October 
17. 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 Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget. I concur with his comments and observations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
               [Estimate No. 22, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                  Washington, DC, November 8, 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 
$9.7 billion from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer a 
total of $9.3 billion from the ERF to the Department of 
Agriculture, Defense, Justice, State, Transportation, and the 
Treasury; International Assistance Programs; and the 
Broadcasting Board of Governors. The funding would address 
consequences of the attacks, including funding for: food and 
refugee assistance to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other 
neighboring countries; economic and security assistance to 
Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other neighboring countries; 
economic and security assistance to Uzbekistan, Turkey and 
other countries in the region; additional sky marshals; 
purchase of additional security equipment for the Nation's 
airports; repair of the Pentagon; and national security 
operations.
    These requests represent the sixth round of transfers from 
the ERF to respond to urgent requirements arising from the 
September 11th terrorist attacks. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, $1.7 
billion will be made available immediately without further 
congressional review and an additional $7.5 billion of these 
funds will be made available 15 days after this designation is 
forwarded to Congress.
    Under the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, $20 
billion of the $40 billion was appropriated without further 
action by Congress. With this latest transfer, you will have 
made $19 billion of this $20 billion available to agencies to 
meet national security, homeland security, and domestic 
recovery purposes.
    The final $20 billion is only available once Congress 
enacts another law making these funds available for obligation. 
On October 17th, you requested that Congress enact approval of 
the $20 billion and we will continue to work with the Congress 
to ensure the quick enactment of your request so that recovery 
and response 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.
