<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


   October 8, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, October 3, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In accordance with provisions of Public 
Law 106-554, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001, I 
hereby request and make available $5.7 million for the 
Department of the Treasury's Counter-terrorism Fund. I 
designate these funds 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. 25, 107th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                   Washington, DC, October 1, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to make 
available previously appropriated contingent emergency funds 
for the Department of the Treasury. The funding provided was 
made contingent upon your submission of a budget request to the 
Congress that includes designation of the amount requested as 
an emergency requirement.
    P.L. 106-554, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001, 
provided a total of $55.0 million in contingent emergency 
funding for the Department of the Treasury. To date, you have 
designated and made available $18.0 million of that amount. The 
funds requested in this transmittal would support counter-
terrorism efforts associated with securing and processing White 
House mail addressed to you and other protectees, including 
White House staff, and detection of biological warfare agents 
at the White House. Your approval of this request would make 
available up to $5.7 million for the U.S. Secret Service. The 
funds would be used to purchase equipment to provide protection 
from chemical, biological, or radiological agents delivered 
through the mail and for labor costs associated with processing 
the mail. In addition, this funding would support the 
continuation of monitoring the air for biological warfare 
agents around the White House complex. Both of these 
requirements were unanticipated prior to the terrorist attacks 
of September 11, 2001, and the anthrax attacks of Fall 2001.
    I recommend that you designate this request totaling up to 
$5.7 million, which is detailed in the enclosure to this 
letter, 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 the Treasury 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 the Treasury:
    U.S. Secret Service: Counter-terrorism Fund: such 
      sums as may be necessary, up to...................      $5,725,000

    Public Law 106-554, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 
2001, provided $55,000,000 for the Department of the Treasury's 
Counter-terrorism Fund, contingent upon the President 
submitting a budget request to the Congress and designating the 
entire amount requested as an emergency requirement. To date, 
the President has requested and made available $17,993,720. At 
this time, an additional $5,725,000 is required to support U.S. 
Secret Service requirements for the processing of White House 
mail and the detection of biological warfare agents at the 
White House.
    Actual expenditures may differ from the original level 
sought from the Counter-terrorism Fund. The Department of the 
Treasury will work with OMB to monitor this Fund to ensure that 
law enforcement bureaus are reimbursed for actual expenses and 
that any excess amounts are held in reserve to meet unforeseen 
needs related to Counter-terrorist activities.
