                                           The White House,
                                      Washington, January 19, 2001.
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: In accordance with provisions of P.L. 106-387, P.L. 
106-291, P.L. 106-377, and P.L. 106-554, I hereby request and 
make available each of the emergency appropriations listed in 
the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of 
Management and Budget. I designate these funds as emergency 
requirements pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended.
    These resources will support a variety of emergency 
activities of critical importance to our Nation.
            Sincerely,
                                                William J. Clinton.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 2, 107th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                  Washington, DC, January 19, 2001.
The President, 
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests to make 
available previously appropriated contingent emergency funds 
for the Departments of Agriculture (USDA), the Interior (DOI), 
and the Treasury, as well as the Federal Emergency Management 
Agency (FEMA), and the Legislative Branch. All of the emergency 
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. Your approval of 
these requests would make available $4.8 billion for a variety 
of purposes, described below.
    P.L. 106-387, the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and 
Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2001, provided a total of $4.2 billion in contingent emergency 
funding for agricultural disaster assistance and assistance to 
low-income citizens. To date, you have designated and made 
available $1.4 billion of that amount. The funds requested in 
this transmittal would make available the remaining $2.8 
billion, and will support the Nation's farmers, ranchers, rural 
communities, and low-income populations, through support for 
land conservation efforts, crop and animal loss reimbursements, 
livestock disease control programs, loan forgiveness, and 
nutrition assistance. In addition, P.L. 106-554, the 
consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001, provided $0.05 billion 
in contingent emergency funding for USDA. Specifically, this 
emergency funding will support reimbursement for livestock 
losses due to bovine tuberculosis, increased funding for the 
Environmental Quality Incentives Program, and expansion of 
Federal meals programs for children upon your designation of 
the entire $0.05 billion provided for these purposes as 
emergency requirements.
    P.L. 106-291, the Department of the Interior and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2001, provided a total of $1.6 
billion in contingent emergency funding. To date, you have made 
available $0.01 billion of this amount. This transmittal 
includes requests for an additional $1.3 billion to be made 
available to USDA and DOI to address wildland fire management. 
These funds will be used to continue fire suppression 
operations, rehabilitate lands destroyed by wildfires, reduce 
the presence of hazardous fuels in sensitive areas, and assist 
rural firefighting efforts.
    P.L. 106-377, the Departments of Veterans Affairs and 
Housing and Urban Development, and Independent Agencies 
Appropriations Act, 2001, provided $1.3 billion in contingent 
emergency funding to support the disaster relief operations of 
FEMA, none of which has been released to date. Since you 
recently declared disaster areas in Oklahoma and Arkansas due 
to the severe damage caused by winter storms there, FEMA has 
been working with State and local authorities to clear snow and 
ice and assist residents of the affected areas. This request 
would make available $0.6 billion for this and other disaster 
relief activities.
    P.L. 106-554, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001, 
also provided contingent emergency funding for the Legislative 
Branch and the Department of the Treasury. Specifically, $0.02 
billion in emergency funding was provided to support security 
enhancements at the Capitol building, improvements to House 
office buildings, and counter-terrorism efforts associated with 
national special security events. This request would make 
available the entire $0.02 billion for these purposes.
    Resource requirements for the Department of the Treasury's 
counter-terrorism efforts noted above have been estimated using 
the best available information to date. Actual expenditures 
incurred for the Inauguration, the State of the Union and the 
2002 Winter Olympics 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. Future transmittals to 
the Congress seeking release of funds from the Counter-
Terrorism Fund will provide further details on actual fund 
expenditures.
    I recommend that you designate the above requests totaling 
$4.8 billion, which are detailed in the enclosure to this 
letter, as emergency requirements 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.
    This transmittal also contains a revision to the amount of 
emergency funding that you made available on December 4, 2000, 
for USDA's Forest Service, State and Private Forestry account. 
This revision is listed in the enclosure to this letter.
    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 make the requested funds available by signing the 
enclosed letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
            Sincerely,
                                            Jacob J. Lew, Director.
    Enclosure.
