June 5, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered 
                             to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                          Washington, June 4, 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.
    As provided in Public Law 107-38, $10.2 million will be 
made available immediately to the Broadcasting Board of 
Governors. These funds, originally transferred to the 
Department of Defense, will support an urgent requirement for 
radio transmitters in Afghanistan.
    The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed 
letter from the Deputy Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget. I concur with the attached comments and 
recommendations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
                [Estimate No. 13, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                      Washington, DC, May 31, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to reallocate 
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. This request would 
reallocate funds previously transferred from the Emergency 
Response Fund (ERF) to the Department of Defense (DOD) and now 
transfer those funds to the Broadcasting Board of Governors 
(BBG).
    Your request to the Congress of September 21, 2001, 
transferred funds to DOD for initial crisis response. In light 
of changing security needs, the Administration now believes 
that a portion of these funds would be better used to finance 
high-powered radio transmission capability in Afghanistan to 
support U.S. international broadcasting activities and 
broadcasts by the Afghan government. Establishing a 400-
kilowatt medium wave (AM) transmitting system in Kabul is the 
most effective means of ensuring nighttime radio coverage of 
virtually the entire country. These funds will be used for the 
purchase and installation of transmitters and associated 
infrastructure, as well as operational costs. This proposal 
would reallocate $10.2 million from DOD to BBG for these 
activities. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, these funds would be 
available immediately.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Broadcasting Board of Governors and the Secretary of Defense in 
recommending your approval of the requested reallocation.
            Sincerely,
                                             Nancy P. Dorn,
                                                   Deputy Director.
    Enclosure.

 Reallocation of Amounts Previously Appropriated and Transferred From 
                      the Emergency Response Fund

Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG):
    International Broadcasting Operations...............      $1,600,000
    Broadcasting Capital Improvements...................      $8,600,000

    The President's request to the Congress of September 21, 
2001, transferred funds to the Department of Defense for 
initial crisis response. In light of changing security needs, 
the President is now reallocating $10.2 million to the BBG to 
support U.S. international broadcasting activities and 
broadcasts by the Afghan government. These funds will be used 
for the purchase and installation of transmitters and 
associated infrastructure, as well as related operational 
costs. Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, these funds would be available 
immediately.
