78-608                     WASHINGTON : 2002


                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, March 21, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider 
expeditiously the enclosed requests, totaling $27.1 billion, 
for emergency FY 2002 supplemental appropriations. The requests 
provide for emergency expenses to support the war on terrorism, 
homeland security, and economic revitalization activities as 
the Nation continues to recover and rebuild following the 
September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
    I hereby designate specific requests contained in the 
accompanying material as emergency requirements pursuant to 
section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. By category, these 
emergency requests total:
          <bullet> Defense: $14.0 billion
          <bullet> International: $1.6 billion
          <bullet> Homeland Security: $3.3 billion (excludes 
        $1.9 billion in a contingent appropriation for the 
        Department of Transportation)
          <bullet> Assistance to New York: $5.5 billion
    The emergency funding requests include a total of $2.7 
billion in budget authority that would be made available 
contingent upon my transmittal of later budget requests to the 
Congress designating the specific amounts requested as an 
emergency requirement. This contingent budget authority 
includes $1.9 billion allocated to the Department of 
Transportation for the Transportation Security Administration 
and $750.0 million allocated to the Department of Labor for 
economic recovery and assistance to dislocated workers.
    This transmittal also contains $240.0 million in non-
emergency requests that are fully offset by proposed 
reductions.
    All of the requests in this transmittal are for the purpose 
of fulfilling a known and urgent FY 2002 requirement and are 
unable to reasonably be met through the use of existing agency 
funds.
    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. 5, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, March 20, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are emergency funding 
requests, totaling $27.1 billion, for various Federal 
Departments and agencies, as well as the Legislative and 
Judicial Branches and the U.S. Postal Service. The proposals 
for emergency funding would provide critical resources to 
support the war on terrorism, homeland security, and economic 
revitalization activities as the Nation continues to recover 
and rebuild following the September 11, 2001, terrorist 
attacks. Of this amount, $2.7 billion for the Departments of 
Labor and Transportation would be provided on a contingent 
basis.
    Also included in this transmittal are non-emergency 
requests for FY 2002 supplemental appropriations for the 
Department of Agriculture, the Department of Veterans Affairs, 
the Office of the United States Trade Representative, and the 
Securities and Exchange Commission. The requests for non-
emergency resources are fully offset by reductions in the 
Departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services, Housing 
and Urban Development, the Interior, and Veterans Affairs and 
International Assistance Programs. In addition, this 
transmittal contains language proposals for the Departments of 
Commerce and Transportation.
    All of the requests in this transmittal are for the purpose 
of fulfilling a known and urgent FY 2002 requirement and are 
unable to reasonably be met through the use of existing agency 
funds.
    As described below and in more detail in the enclosures, 
the requests include the following:
Defense
    <bullet> $14.0 billion for the Department of Defense (DoD) 
and the intelligence community to prosecute the global war on 
terrorism for the balance of FY 2002 and to enable DoD to 
fulfill other national security responsibilities. Expeditious 
approval of this emergency supplemental request is critical for 
the Department to continue the global war on terrorism and to 
ensure the readiness of the U.S. military forces to support 
this and other missions in the months ahead. The $14.0 billion 
request includes:
          <bullet> $6.7 billion to conduct military operations;
          <bullet> $4.1 billion to pay reserve and national 
        guard personnel who are on active duty to support 
        military operations on a full-time basis;
          <bullet> $1.4 billion to fund critical command, 
        control, communications, and intelligence support to 
        military operations and classified programs including 
        the National Foreign Intelligence Program;
          <bullet> $0.5 billion to procure precision munitions, 
        unmanned aerial vehicles, and unique special operations 
        weapons;
          <bullet> $0.4 billion for coalition support; and
          <bullet> $0.9 billion for various programs critical 
        to the war effort (e.g., Guantanamo Bay, information 
        operations, and Special Operations Command 
        requirements).
    Without the additional funds, the Department will be unable 
to respond to the evolving military requirements of the global 
war on terrorism and would have to curtail other operations, 
cancel training, defer maintenance, and ultimately take other 
drastic measures to fulfill the President's charge to combat 
international terrorism aggressively. The Department has 
already agreed to offset additional operational costs from 
earlier supplemental funding provided for activities now judged 
as lower priorities.
International
    <bullet> $436.0 million to support the State Department's 
emergency expenses in support of the United States' efforts to 
respond to, deter, or prevent acts of international terrorism. 
This request would provide funding of $201.0 million for 
Embassy Security, Construction and Maintenance, which includes 
construction and renovation costs of the United States' 
missions in Kabul and Dushanbe, as well as $20.0 million in 
additional funding to reopen those missions. The request also 
includes: $114.0 million for urgent counter-narcotics and law 
enforcement support; $43.0 million for the Contributions 
International Peacekeeping Activities account; $20.0 million 
for State Department domestic security requirements; and $15.0 
million for public diplomacy and exchange accounts.
    <bullet> $1.2 billion to support the United States 
International Assistance Programs in order to deter, or prevent 
acts of international terrorism. These funds would be used 
immediately to strengthen the forces of our friends and allies 
in the fight against terrorism, by providing vitally needed 
military equipment and training and economic assistance. The 
request for the Foreign Military Financing Program is $373.0 
million, and the Economic Support Fund request is $525.0 
million.
    <bullet> $7.4 million for the Broadcasting Board of 
Governors to allow Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty to continue 
to provide the people of Afghanistan news and information about 
events within Afghanistan and the surrounding region.

Homeland Security

    <bullet> $4.7 billion for the Department of Transportation. 
The requested funds include: $2.4 billion to implement and 
operate the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for 
the remainder of FY 2002; $255.0 million for homeland security 
activities for the United States Coast Guard; $19.3 million for 
implementation and homeland security activities of the new 
Border Enforcement Program within the Federal Motor Carrier 
Safety Administration; and, $3.5 million to upgrade the current 
Crisis Management Center into a new Transportation Information 
Operations Center. The request includes $1.9 billion for TSA, 
to be made available contingent upon your submission of a later 
budget request to the Congress designating the entire amount 
requested as an emergency requirement.
    <bullet> $327.0 million to enable the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency to provide equipment and training grants to 
States and localities to improve terrorism and chemical-
biological response capabilities.
    <bullet> $87.0 million for the U.S. Postal Service to 
continue its efforts to protect employees and postal customers 
from exposure to biohazardous material and to sanitize and 
screen the mail for such material, making use of the most cost 
effective technology possible.
    <bullet> $55.0 million for the General Services 
Administration. Of the funds requested, $51.8 million would be 
used to increase security services at Federal buildings 
nationwide and for additional security equipment and $2.5 
million would be used to help protect against potential 
disruptions in information technology infrastructure.
    <bullet> $51.0 million for the Department of Justice. The 
requested funds include: $35.0 million to enable the 
Immigration and Naturalization Service to fully implement 
increased air and sea port security initiatives; $10.0 million 
for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to support a multi-
agency terrorist tracking task force; and $5.8 million for 
deployment of the Automated Biometrics Identification System/
Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System to 30 
additional ports of entry.
    <bullet> Other amounts include: $26.0 million for the 
Department of Energy to improve emergency response assets and 
for critical energy security and assurance activities; $19.3 
million to the National Science Foundation to provide 
additional funds for the Cybercorps/Scholarships for Service 
program; $14.0 million to the Judicial Branch for perimeter 
security enhancements of the Supreme Court building and grounds 
and for physical security measures at Federal courthouses and 
at the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; 
$13.0 million for the Department of Commerce to begin the 
Homeland Security Information Technology and Evaluation Program 
and for standards development for chemical/biological/nuclear/
radioactive explosive threat detection equipment; $12.5 million 
for the Environmental Protection Agency for additional expenses 
incurred for anthrax investigations and cleanup actions at the 
United States Capitol and Congressional office building 
complex; $7.5 million for the Legislative Branch for the 
Copyright Office of the Library of Congress; and $5.0 million 
for the Office of Administration within the Executive Office of 
the President.

Assistance to New York

    <bullet> $2.8 billion to enable the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency to support additional disaster relief efforts 
in response to the September 11th terrorist attacks.
    <bullet> $2.0 billion for the Department of Transportation. 
Of the funds requested, $1.8 billion would be used for Capital 
Investment Grants to replace, rebuild, or enhance mass 
transportation systems serving the Borough of Manhattan, New 
York City, New York and $167.0 million would be used for the 
restoration and reconstruction of Federal-aid Highways-eligible 
State and local roads in New York City damaged by the September 
11th terrorist attacks.
    <bullet> $750.0 million for the Department of Housing and 
Urban Development for Community Development Block Grants to be 
provided to the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC) 
to rebuild utility infrastructure destroyed as a result of the 
September 11th terrorist attacks and to assist LMDC's efforts 
to rebuild Lower Manhattan.

Economic Recovery

    <bullet> $750.0 million for the Department of Labor to 
assist dislocated workers, to be made available contingent upon 
your submission of a later budget request to the Congress

would be available for National Emergency Grants to provide 
employment and training and related assistance to dislocated 
workers.

Affairs (VA) to ensure that all veterans are able to enroll and
