99-012                    WASHINGTON : 2002

                                           The White House,
                                    Washington, September 13, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the 
enclosed requests for FY 2003 budget amendments for the 
Departments of Agriculture, Energy, Interior, and 
Transportation; International Assistance Programs; and the 
National Capital Planning Commission.
    In total, these amendments would not affect the budgetary 
resources proposed in my FY 2003 Budget.
    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. 24, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                Washington, DC, September 12, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests for FY 2003 
budget amendments for the Departments of Agriculture, Energy, 
Interior (DOI), and Transportation; International Assistance 
Programs; and the National Capital Planning Commission. The 
proposals contained in this transmittal would not affect the 
budgetary resources contained in your FY 2003 Budget.
    As described below and in more detail in the enclosures, 
the requests include the following:
Department of Agriculture
    <bullet> $60 million is proposed for salary and expense 
costs of the Farm Service Agency for administering and 
implementing programs established under P.L. 107-171, the Farm 
Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002. This increase is 
fully offset by a $45 million reduction to the Small Watershed 
Rehabilitation Program and a $15 million reduction to the Rural 
Strategic Investment Program. This proposal is necessary to 
reflect the increased costs of administering and implementing 
the programs in P.L. 107-171 not anticipated in the FY 2003 
Budget.
Department of Energy
    <bullet> $10 million is proposed in the Energy Conservation 
account, fully offset by a corresponding reduction in the 
Fossil Energy Research and Development account. This proposal 
would establish a competitive solicitation program in support 
of your National Climate Change Technology Initiative (NCCTI). 
In total, the proposal would provide $20 million for the NCCTI 
program funded by $10 million from the Fossil Energy Research 
and Development account, and an additional $10 million 
redirected from the Industry Sector program within the Energy 
Conservation account.
Department of Transportation
    <bullet> Language is proposed to provide $5 million for the 
Federal Highway Administration from the Transportation 
Infrastructure Finance and Innovation program to conduct a 
study, including necessary planning and environmental reviews 
and engineering designs, to examine the impact of the 
Pennsylvania Avenue and E Street closures to traffic in the 
vicinity of the White House and to develop transportation 
alternatives to alleviate congestion in that area.
    <bullet> Language is proposed to allow the Secretary of 
Transportation flexibility to fund the appropriate mix of 
transportation projects for the Borough of Manhattan in 
response to the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
International Assistance Programs
    <bullet> Language is proposed to allow the Administration 
to complete modification of loans and guarantees for Pakistan 
and Jordan.
    <bullet> Language is also proposed to provide authorization 
to implement a new, no subsidy-cost Foreign Military Financing 
15-year loan to the government of Poland for the purchase of 48 
F-16 aircraft, weapons, and related logistics support. As a 
member of NATO, Poland is an essential component in our effort 
to strengthen the Trans-Atlantic Alliance and promote a robust 
round of enlargement at the NATO summit in Prague.
The National Capital Planning Commission/DOI
    <bullet> $6.1 million is proposed for the National Capital 
Planning Commission for expenses related to the planning, 
design and initial construction activities of the project at 
Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House. The proposed 
amendment would provide $2.8 million to the Commission to 
complete the design of Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the 
White House, as proposed in the Commission's Urban Design and 
Security Plan. The amendment would also provide $0.8 million 
for structural testing of streetscape components and $2.5 
million for initial surveying and utility relocation. These 
last two activities would not be conducted by the National 
Capital Planning Commission, but the funds would be transferred 
to the Federal Highway Administration, which will be the 
construction manager for the project.
    <bullet> To offset the $6.1 million described above, 
reductions are proposed in three accounts within the DOI that 
are projected to have amounts of unobligated funds carried into 
FY 2003. These reductions would not affect program goals or 
objectives in these agencies.
    I have carefully reviewed these proposals and am satisfied 
that they are necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
heads of the affected Departments and agencies in recommending 
that you transmit the amendments to the Congress.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosures.

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 102
FY 2003 Pending Request: $1,062,712,000
Proposed Amendment: $60,000,000
Revised Request: $1,122,712,000

    This request would provide an additional $60 million in 
funds for salary and expense costs of the Farm Service Agency 
for administering and implementing programs established under 
the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (the ``Farm 
Bill''). This increase is fully offset by reductions to the 
Small Watershed Rehabilitation Program and the Rural Strategic 
Investment Program, as proposed in an accompanying budget 
amendment.
    This proposal is necessary to reflect the increased costs 
of administering and implementing the Farm Bill programs not 
anticipated in the FY 2003 Budget. This additional funding 
would ensure that programs are delivered to customers in a 
timely and efficient fashion.
    This proposal would increase FY 2003 outlays by $54 
million.
                                ------

                     TITLE VII--GENERAL PROVISIONS

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 195-201
FY 2003 Pending Request: --
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: --

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
insert after Sec. 722 the following new provisions:)

    Sec. 723. Funds provided under subsection (h)(1)(A) of 
section 14 of the Watershed Protection and Flood Protection Act 
(16 U.S.C. 1012), as amended, are hereby cancelled.
    Sec. 724. Section 385E of the Consolidated Farm and Rural 
Development Act (7 U.S.C. et seq.), as amended, is further 
amended--
          (1) in subsection (a), by striking ``$100,000,000'' 
        and inserting ``$85,000,000''; and
          (2) in subsection (b)(2), by striking ``$87,000,000'' 
        and inserting ``$72,000,000''.
    Sec. 723 would cancel $45 million in FY 2003 mandatory 
funding for the Natural Resources Conservation Service for the 
Small Watershed Rehabilitation Program. In an accompanying 
proposal, the $45 million would be reallocated to the Farm 
Service Agency.
    Sec. 724 would reduce funding made available by the Farm 
Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 for the Rural 
Strategic Investment Program by $15 million. In an accompanying 
proposal, the $15 million would also be reallocated to the Farm 
Service Agency.
    Taken together, these amendments would decrease FY 2003 
outlays by $32 million.
                                ------                                


                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY


                            Energy Programs


                 FOSSIL ENERGY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 400
FY 2003 Pending Request: $534,155,000
Proposed Amendment: -$10,000,000
Revised Request: $524,155,000

    This proposal would reduce the pending request for the 
Fossil Energy Research and Development account for the 
Sequestration (R&D) program by $10 million. In an accompanying 
proposal, the $10 million would be provided to the Energy 
Conservation account, to support the Administration's National 
Climate Change Technology Initiative competitive solicitation 
program. This program would fund R&D projects to explore novel 
technologies or technical approaches that could contribute in 
significant ways to future reductions or avoidances of so-
called ``greenhouse gas'' emissions, and/or their capture and 
sequestration (permanent storage).
    This proposal would not impact the current Sequestration 
R&D program. Even with the $10 million reduction, the growth in 
the program's budget request would be 37 percent over the FY 
2002 level.
    This amendment would decrease outlays in this account by $4 
million.
                                ------                                


                          DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY


                            Energy Programs


                          ENERGY CONSERVATION

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 402
FY 2003 Pending Request: $904,304,000
Proposed Amendment: $10,000,000
Revised Request: $914,304,000

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete ``$904,304,000'' and substitute $914,304,000; and insert 
the following before the colon after ``until expended'', of 
which $20,000,000 shall be used to support research and 
development contracts on technological approaches to reduce, 
avoid, or capture greenhouse gas emissions, to be awarded 
pursuant to competitive solicitations.)
    This proposal would provide $10 million to the Energy 
Conservation account to establish a competitive solicitation 
program in support of the President's National Climate Change 
Technology Initiative (NCCTI). The proposal would also redirect 
$10 million in this account from Industry Sector activities ($8 
million from the Industries of the Future (Specific) subprogram 
and $2 million from the Cooperative Programs with States 
subprogram) to provide a total of $20 million for the NCCTI 
competitive solicitation program.
    The competitive solicitation is intended to complement and 
enrich the existing research and development portfolio and help 
ensure that all possible technology options are explored. 
Projects funded by the NCCTI competitive solicitation program 
would be consistent with projects typically supported by the 
Department's Energy Conservation account (e.g., a new approach 
to increasing the energy efficiency of a common industrial 
process), Energy Supply account (e.g., a renewable energy or 
nuclear energy project), or the Fossil Energy account (e.g., a 
new approach to sequestering carbon emissions from power 
plants). The NCCTI competitive solicition program would require 
these diverse types of projects to compete for funding based on 
their potential to reduce, avoid, or capture greenhouse gas 
emissions, which would foster novel concepts to address climate 
change that may not comport with established research and 
development program plans.
    The competitive solicitation program would be administered 
by the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The 
Department would make competitive awards based on the 
recommendations of the NCCTI Interagency Working Group, who 
would seek external peer evaluation of proposals for advice on 
project selection.
    The increase of $10 million in budget authority would be 
offset by a corresponding decrease in the Fossil Energy 
Research and Development account, as proposed in an 
accompanying budget amendment.
    This amendment would increase FY 2003 outlays in this
