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 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.

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.
