     JUSTICE AND THE NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION

<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


  November 14, 2002.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, November 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 
Department of Justice and the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration.
    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. 26, 107th Congress, 2d Session]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                  Washington, DC, November 7, 2002.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests for FY 2003 
budget amendments for the Department of Justice and the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The amendments 
in this transmittal would not affect the budgetary resources 
proposed in your FY 2003 Budget.
    As described below and in more detail in the enclosures, 
the requests include the following:
Department of Justice
    <bullet> $49 million is proposed for the Foreign Terrorist 
Tracking Task Force (FTTTF) to support its operations. In 
October 2001, you directed the Department of Justice to create 
this Task Force to serve an essential function in the war on 
terrorism. Pursuant to this directive (Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive-2), the FTTTF is charged with ensuring 
that Federal agencies, including the Department of State, law 
enforcement components, and the intelligence community, have 
the best available information with which to keep foreign 
terrorists and their supporters out of the United States, and 
put under surveillance, locate, prosecute, detain, or deport 
such aliens already present in the country.
    To offset the $49 million requested for the FTTTF, the 
following reductions are proposed: $35 million from the 
Counterterrorism Fund; $5 million from the Immigration and 
Naturalization Service, including $2 million originally 
requested for a pay and compensation study; and $9 million from 
salaries and expense costs of the U.S. Marshals Service. The 
reallocation of these resources to support the FTTTF is the 
most effective use of these resources.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration
    <bullet> Two amendments in this transmittal reflect your 
decision to restructure and improve NASA's Space Launch 
Initiative (SLI) and to ensure that the International Space 
Station can achieve the agreed upon U.S. ``core complete'' 
configuration and better address research priorities. The 
proposals would incorporate, in FY 2003, $120 million in 
funding from the Third Generation Reusable Launch Vehicle 
program into the SLI budget. In addition, within the SLI 
budget, $165 million would be reallocated from other SLI 
projects into NASA Unique Systems (renamed Orbital Space 
Plane). The proposals also make changes to NASA's five-year 
plan to bolster Space Station reserves and ensure the U.S. core 
complete configuration; extend the Space Shuttle's operational 
life and add launches to increase the Space Station's 
scientific utilization; aggressively pursue the Orbital Space 
Plane to assure crew transfer to and from the Space Station; 
and develop the technologies that will enable future launch 
systems.
    I have carefully reviewed these proposals and am satisfied 
that they are necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the 
Attorney General and the NASA Administrator in recommending 
that you transmit the amendments to the Congress.
            Sincerely,
                                  Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.,
                                                          Director.
    Enclosures.

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 631
FY 2003 Pending Request: $4,322,662,000
Proposed Amendment: $49,000,000
Revised Request: $4,371,662,000

    This proposal would provide $49 million for the operations 
of the Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force (FTTTF). This 
increase in budgetary resources is fully offset by reductions 
to several accounts within the Department of Justice (DOJ), as 
proposed in accompanying budget amendments.
    The President directed DOJ to create the FTTTF, pursuant to 
Homeland Security Presidential Directive-2. The FTTTF is 
charged with ensuring that Federal agencies, including the 
Department of State, law enforcement components, and the 
intelligence community, have the best available information 
with which to keep foreign terrorists and their supporters out 
of the United States, and put under surveillance, locate, 
prosecute, detain, or deport such aliens already present in the 
country.
    Because of the timing of the directive establishing the 
FTTTF and the planning activities necessary for its activation, 
DOJ was unable to include resources for the FTTTF in the FY 
2003 Budget request.

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 613
FY 2003 Pending Request: $35,000,000
Proposed Amendment: -$35,000,000
Revised Request: --

(Under the above heading, all appropriations language should be 
deleted.)

    This proposal would eliminate the pending request for the 
Counterterrorism Fund. In an accompanying proposal, the $35, 
million originally requested for the Counterterrorism Fund is 
now requested to be provided to the Foreign Terrorist Tracking 
Task Force (FTTTF) to support its operations.
    The $35 million was requested in the Counterterrorism Fund 
for the Drug Enforcement Administration's Special Operation 
Division prior to the creation of the FTTTF. With the 
capabilities being developed by the FTTTF, reallocating these 
resources to support Task Force operations is the most 
effective use of these resources in the Department of Justice's 
efforts to combat terrorism.

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 622-623
FY 2003 Pending Request: $722,193,000
Proposed Amendment: -$9,000,000
Revised Request: $713,193,000

    This proposal would reduce the pending request for the 
United States (USMS) by $9 million. In an accompanying 
proposal, the $9 million is now requested to be provided to the 
Foreign Terrorist Tracking Task Force to support its 
operations.
    This reduction is possible due to an inadvertent $9 million 
overstatement of the USMS rent estimates in the FY 2003 Budget 
request.

                         DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE


                 Immigration and Naturalization Service


                        IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 636-637
FY 2003 Pending Request: $3,241,798,000*
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * Appropriations language in the FY 2003 Budget Appendix for this 
account inadvertently omitted ``,000'' from the pending request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Proposed Amendment: -$5,000,000
Revised Request: $3,236,798,000

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$3,241,798'' and substitute $3,236,798,000).

    This proposal would reduce the pending request for 
Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) salaries and 
expenses by $5 million. In an accompanying proposal, the $5 
million is now requested to be provided to the Foreign 
Terrorist Tracking Task Force (FTTTF) to support its 
operations.
    Of the $5 million proposed reduction, $3 million is derived 
from recurring intelligence program resources that were 
appropriated as part of P.L. 107-206, the FY 2002 Emergency 
Supplemental. This amendment provides the most effective use of 
these funds given the unique terrorist tracking capabilities 
being developed by the FTTTF. The $2 million originally 
requested for INS's pay and compensation study, addressed by 
INS in FY 2002, provides the balance of the reduction.

             NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION


                           HUMAN SPACE FLIGHT

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 1023
FY 2003 Pending Request: $6,172,900,000
Proposed Amendment: --
Revised Request: $6,172,900,000

    This proposal reflects the President's decision to 
restructure NASA's Space Launch Initiative and ensure that the 
International Space Station can achieve the agreed upon U.S. 
``core complete'' configuration and better address scientific 
research priorities. For the five-year plan (FY 2003-2007), the 
proposal, in aggregate, transfers $1.2 billion to the Human 
Space Flight account and allocates these funds by:
        <bullet> Adding $706 million to bolster Space Station 
        reserves and maintain items requiring long-lead 
        development items for potential enhanced research in 
        response to recently completed independent cost 
        estimates and program reviews; and
        <bullet> Adding $470 million for the Space Shuttle to 
        ensure its extended viability for supporting Space 
        Station research and operations needs, as well as 
        additional Space Shuttle flights to increase scientific 
        utilization of the Space Station.
    This amendment would not affect the FY 2003 budgetary 
resources proposed in the FY 2003 Budget.
             NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION


                  SCIENCE, AERONAUTICS AND TECHNOLOGY

FY 2003 Budget Appendix Page: 1025-1026
FY 2003 Pending Request: $8,918,500,000
Proposed Amendment: --
Revised Request: $8,918,500,000

    This proposal reflects the President's decision to 
restructure and improve NASA's Space Launch Initiative (SLI) 
and ensure that the International Space Station can achieve the 
agreed upon U.S. ``core complete'' configuration and better 
address research priorities. NASA has developed a new 
Integrated Space Transportation Plan that provides a systematic 
approach to its space transportation needs. The plan will: 
extend the Space Shuttle's operational life through at least 
the middle of the next decade; aggressively pursue a crew 
transfer vehicle called the Orbital Space Plane; and develop 
the technologies that will enable future launch systems, 
especially reusable launch vehicles. Some of these activities 
would be conducted under a revamped and more effectively 
focused SLI program.
    For FY 2003, the proposal would:
          <bullet> Transfer $165 million within the SLI budget 
        from other SLI projects into NASA Unique Systems 
        (renamed Orbital Space Plane); and
          <bullet> Shift $120 million into the SLI budget due 
        to incorporation of the Third Generation Reusable 
        Launch Vehicle program.
    The above changes for FY 2003 will result in significant 
modifications to the outyear budget, but remain within NASA's 
annual budget totals. Compared with NASA's five-year plan (FY 
2003-2007) contained in the FY 2003 Budget, the proposal would:
          <bullet> Add $882 million for the SLI Orbital Space 
        Plane to aggressively pursue this critical new 
        capability for Space Station;
          <bullet> Add $75 million for Biological and Physical 
        Research to enable processing and transportation of 
        scientific payloads to the Space Station on the 
        additional Shuttle flights;
          <bullet> Add $1,176 million to the Human Space Flight 
        account;
