<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


   March 18, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, March 14, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washingtion, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the 
enclosed requests for FY 2003 budget amendments for the 
Departments of Commerce, Defense, Labor, Transportation, and 
the Treasury; the Environmental Protection Agency; and the 
Federal Emergency Management Agency. The discretionary budget 
authority proposed in my FY 2003 Budget would not be increased 
by these requests. However, the total budgetary resources 
available to the Department of Transportation would increase by 
$596 million.
    This transmittal also contains FY 2003 budget amendments 
for the Legislative Branch. As a matter of comity, 
appropriations requests of the Legislative Branch are 
transmitted without change. These additional amendments would 
increase discretionary resources for the Legislative Branch by 
$40.4 million.
    The details of these requests 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. 3, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, March 14, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests for FY 2003 
technical budget amendments for the Departments of Commerce, 
Defense, Labor, Transportation, and the Treasury; the 
Environmental Protection Agency; and the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency (FEMA). The discretionary budget authority 
proposed in your FY 2003 Budget would not be increased by these 
amendments. However, the total budgetary resources available to 
the Department of Transportation would increase by $596 
million.
    As described below and in more detail in the enclosures, 
the amendments include the following:
Department of Transportation
    <bullet> An increase in the obligation limitation of the 
Federal Highway Administration at $596 million. A mathematical 
error in the calculation of the amount of highway-related 
receipts credited to the highway account at the time the budget 
was prepared resulted in an incorrect level of highway funding 
in the budget.
FEMA
    <bullet> Language clarifying that the Department of 
Justice's Office of Domestic Preparedness is proposed to be 
transferred entirely to FEMA and merged into the new First 
Responder initiative.
Other FY 2003 Amendments
    Several other technical amendments to your FY 2003 Budget 
are included in this transmittal for the Departments of 
Commerce, Defense, Labor, and the Treasury, as well as the 
Environmental Protection Agency.
    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 
that you transmit the proposals to Congress.
Legislative Branch
    Also included in this transmittal are amendments to your FY 
2003 Budget for the Legislative Branch. As required by law and 
in a spirit of comity, appropriations requests of the 
Legislative Branch are submitted without change.
    These amendments for the Legislative Branch would add 
discretionary resources to your FY 2003 Budget by $40.4 
million.
            Sincerely,
                                Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., Director.
    Enclosures.

FY 2002 Pending Request: $2,281,118,540
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: $2,281,118,540

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading in 
the last proviso, delete ``of the amounts provided, 
$3,000,000'', and substitute , in addition, $3,000,000.)
    This proposal would amend the pending appropriations 
language to reflect correctly the policy proposed in the FY 
2003 Budget. Specifically, the amendment clarifies that the 
funds to be transferred from the Coastal Zone Management Fund 
are in addition to the base discretionary funds.
    This amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
                                ------

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading 
delete, the brackets on either side of ``$50,000,000'' and 
delete $52,632,000.)
    This proposal would decrease the pending request, by $2.6 
million, for the Overseas Contingency Operations Transfer Fund. 
This change is necessary to provide an accurate description of 
the Administration's policy for this program.
    This amendment would decrease FY 2003 outlays by $0.5 
million.
                                ------

borrowing by the Black Lung Disability Trust Fund.
    This amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
                                ------

Proposed Amendment: $596,000,000
Revised Request: $23,204,787,000

    This amendment would increase the Federal-Aid Highway 
limitation on obligations by $596.0 million. a mathematical 
error in the amount of tax revenue credited to the highway 
account of the Highway Trust Fund resulted in an incorrect 
level of funding for the Federal-Aid Highway account in the FY 
2003 Budget.
    This proposal would increase FY 2003 outlays by $161 
million.
                                ------

Stabilization Board established by section 102 of the Air 
Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (Public Law 
107-42), $6,041,000, to remain available until expended.
    This proposal is necessary to reflect correctly the policy 
proposed in the FY 2003 Budget. Proposed appropriations 
language for this account was inadvertently omitted in the FY 
2003 Budget Appendix.
    This amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
                                ------

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete ``$5,000,000 shall be for technical assistance and 
training programs designed to benefit Native American, Native 
Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native Communities, and''; delete 
``$9,850,000'' and substitute $11,005,000; and delete 
``$1,000,000'' and substitute $250,000.
    The amendment is necessary to reflect the policy proposed 
in the FY 2003 Budget. Proposed administrative expenses should 
be $11.0 million instead of $9.9 million and costs to 
administer direct loans should be $250,000 rather than $1.0 
million. In addition, a FY 2002 earmark of $5.0 million for 
Native American communities should have been marked for 
deletion.
    This amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
                                ------

no funds made available by this or any other Act''; and insert 
; and before ``of which $3,200,000 for new headquarters shall 
remain available''.)
    The amendment is necessary to reflect correctly the policy 
proposed in the FY 2003 Budget. The appropriation for the Gang 
Resistance Education and Training program was inadvertently 
marked for deletion in the FY 2003 Budget Appendix.
    The amendment would not affect the proposed budget totals.
                                ------
