  September 4, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, August 13, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In order to fulfill urgent requirements 
for civil aviation security, I am notifying the Congress of my 
intent to reallocate funds previously transferred from the 
Emergency Response Fund.
    To support revised emergency requirements in light of 
changing security needs, a total of $42 million will be 
transferred to the Federal Aviation Administration for security 
costs at air traffic control facilities.
    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 recommendations.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 21, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                   Washington, DC, August 12, 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).
    The Administration now proposes to reallocate $42 million 
in ERF resources to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
to pay necessary security costs at air traffic control 
facilities. Without these funds, FAA would be forced to 
furlough air traffic controllers and other employees to pay for 
the required security costs.
    This is one of the genuinely urgent funding needs in the 
recently enacted FY 2002 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations 
Act but it was among the $5.1 billion provided by the Congress 
as ``contingent'' emergency appropriations. Despite repeated 
objections from your Administration, Congress included an 
unprecedented provision requiring you to allow billions of 
dollars in unnecessary spending to access truly needed funds, 
such as those required for the FAA.
    The $42 million for FAA would be derived from previously 
allocated ERF funds, as follows:
          <bullet> $22 million from the Federal Buildings Fund 
        in the General Services Administration, which cannot be 
        obligated in the near future;
          <bullet> $10 million from the U.S. Secret Service, 
        which is available due to lower-than-projected overtime 
        and travel costs; and
          <bullet> $10 million from the Embassy Security and 
        Construction program in the Department of State, which 
        will not be obligated in the near future.
    Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, $32 million will be made available 
immediately and $10 million will be made available 15 days 
after this designation is forwarded to the Congress.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the heads 
of the relevant Departments and agencies in recommending your 
approval of the requested reallocation.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosure.
