  September 4, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, August 7, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In accordance with provisions of Public 
Law 107-116, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human 
Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2002, I hereby request and make available appropriations of 
$100 million for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program 
of the Department of Health and Human Services. These funds 
will enable the Department to address the needs of low-income 
households in 33 States and the District of Columbia 
experiencing hotter than normal weather conditions.
    I designate the $100 million made available today as an 
emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)2)(A) of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as 
amended.
    The details of this action 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. 20, 107th Congress, 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, August 6, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to make 
available $100 million in emergency appropriations for the 
Department of Health and Human Services. Your approval of this 
request would make available previously appropriated funds to 
the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to 
support the needs of low-income households in 33 States and the 
District of Columbia that are affected by hotter than normal 
weather conditions.
    P.L. 107-116, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human 
Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2002, provided $300 million for LIHEAP, contingent upon the 
President submitting a budget request to the Congress and 
designating the entire amount requested as an emergency 
requirement. To date, you have not released any of these 
emergency funds.
    I recommend that you designate this request for $100 
million as an emergency requirement in accordance with section 
251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985, as amended. No further congressional 
action will be required.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Secretary of Health and Human Services in recommending that you 
make the requested funds available by signing the enclosed 
letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
            Sincerely,
                                           Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.
    Enclosure.

    Emergency Appropriations: Amounts Previously Appropriated Made 
                       Available by the President

Department of Health and Human Services:
    Administration for Children and Families: Low income 
      home energy assistance program (LIHEAP)...........    $100,000,000

    P.L. 106-116, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human 
Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2002, provided $300 million for LIHEAP, contingent upon the 
President submitting a budget request to the Congress and 
designating the entire amount requested as an emergency 
requirement.
    Of the $300 million in contingent emergency appropriations 
provided by P.L. 107-116, no funds have been designated as an 
emergency requirement and made available. At this time, $100 
million in contingent funding is required to support the needs 
of low-income households in 33 States and the District of 
Columbia that are affected by hotter than normal weather 
conditions.
