99-011                     WASHINGTON : 2002

                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, February 12, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In furtherance of the 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 am notifying the Congress of my 
intent to reallocate funds previously transferred from the 
Emergency Response Fund. These reallocations reflect revised 
priorities in light of changing national security and homeland 
security needs in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 
September 11, 2001.
    As provided in Public Law 107-38, $220 million will be made 
available 15 days from the date of this transmittal for the 
Government of Pakistan and $39.8 million will be made available 
immediately for International Assistance Programs and the 
Department of the Treasury.
    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. 1, 107th Cong. 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                 Washington, DC, February 12, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests to revise the 
allocation of certain 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 
(the Act). These requests would reallocate funds previously 
transferred to the Departments of Defense (DOD) and State from 
the Emergency Response Fund (ERF) and now transfer those funds 
to International Assistance Programs to provide assistance to 
our allies in the war on terrorism. In addition, funds would be 
reallocated within the Department of the Treasury to meet 
changing homeland security needs.
    Your November 9th request to the Congress transferred funds 
to DOD to pursue the war on terrorism and to the State 
Department to increase security at its Washington, DC 
headquarters. The Administration now believes that a portion of 
these funds would be better used to provide assistance to 
Pakistan and Israel, as allies in the war on terrorism. 
Specifically:
    <bullet> This proposal would reallocate $188 million from 
DOD and $32 million from the State Department to compensate the 
government of Pakistan for costs incurred in aiding U.S. 
military forces in Operation Enduring Freedom. Pursuant to the 
Act, these funds would be available 15 days after the 
transmittal of this request.
    <bullet> This proposal would also reallocate $28 million 
from DOD to assist Israel in its efforts to combat and prevent 
terrorism. Pursuant to the Act, this funding would be available 
immediately.
    In addition, your September 21st request transferred $14.7 
million to the U.S. Customs Service to provide air support for 
counterterrorism activities. However, homeland security 
priorities have shifted since the days immediately following 
the September 11th attacks and, of the amount originally 
transferred, $11.8 million is no longer needed for this 
purpose. In order to continue to protect our Nation's borders, 
we propose that the Customs Service use these funds to 
reimburse the National Guard for its role in protecting the 
northern border.
    I have carefully received 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.
                                ------
