99-011                     WASHINGTON : 2001

                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, November 30, 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 2001 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act 
for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the 
United States, today I have authorized transfers from the 
Emergency Response Fund totaling $699 million 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, these 
funds will be made immediately available to the Departments of 
Commerce, Defense, Transportation, and the Treasury, as well as 
the Legislative Branch.
    These funds are in addition to the $19 billion that I 
previously authorized for transfer in response to the terrorist 
attacks of September 11, 2001. With this action, I have 
transferred all but $327 million of the funds that were made 
available to me from the Emergency Response Fund.
    In addition to these funds, I submitted a request for and 
the Congress has begun to act upon $20 billion in additional 
emergency response funding. Enactment of these funds will 
provide adequate funding to meet known requirements. 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 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. 23, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                 Washington, DC, November 30, 2001.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request 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 
$19.0 billion from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
    Your approval of these additional requests would transfer 
$699.1 million to the Departments of Commerce, Defense, 
Transportation, and the Treasury, as well as the Legislative 
Branch. These funds would be used to: provide increased 
security for the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area 
transportation system; compensate the Metropolitan Washington 
Airports Authority for the Federal closure and reduced flight 
schedules at Reagan National Airport; provide additional funds 
to the Secret Service for overtime and additional travel costs; 
provide economic development assistance to Northern Virginia; 
increase situational awareness and improved command and control 
at the Department of Defense; and increase security for the 
Capitol complex, including overtime compensation for the 
Capitol Police and construction of a Capitol Visitors Center.
    These requests represent the seventh round of transfers 
from the ERF to respond to urgent requirements arising from the 
September 11th terrorist attacks. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, 
these funds will be made available immediately without further 
congressional review.
    Under the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, $20.0 
billion was appropriated without further action by Congress. 
With this latest transfer, you will have made $19.7 billion of 
this $20.0 billion available to agencies to meet national 
security, homeland security, and domestic recovery purposes.
    Another $20.0 billion included in P.L. 107-38 will only be 
available once Congress enacts another law making these funds 
available for obligation. On October 17th, you requested that 
Congress enact approval of the $20.0 billion and the House 
recently passed legislation generally consistent with that 
request. We will continue to work with the Congress to ensure 
that the final level of supplemental funding does not exceed 
$20.0 billion.
    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.
