107th Congress, 1st Session - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 107-80 A REQUEST FOR SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS __________ COMMUNICATION From THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting A REQUEST FOR FY 2001 SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, DEFENSE (INCLUDING THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS), ENERGY, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT, THE INTERIOR, TRANSPORTATION, THE TREASURY, AND VETERANS AFFAIRS; INTERNATIONAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS; AND THE NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> June 5, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed The White House, Washington, June 1, 2001. The Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sir: I ask the Congress to consider expeditiously the enclosed requests for FY 2001 supplemental appropriations for the Departments of Agriculture, Defense (including the Army Corps of Engineers), Energy, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Transportation, the Treasury, and Veterans Affairs; International Assistance Programs; and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The additional resources requested are within the FY 2001 discretionary spending limits enacted by Congress last year. The supplemental request is primarily for defense activities related to pay, support, training and quality of life for military personnel, as well as the coverage of regular operations costs in the current fiscal year. It is imperative to reverse the pattern of underfunding these costs in the annual appropriations measure. Over the last few years, it has become evident that this approach has created uncertainty in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year and disruption to necessary defense operations. The upcoming amendment to my FY 2002 Budget will incorporate elements of the ongoing strategy review currently underway by the Secretary of Defense. But, it is essential that we start off on the right footing. This supplemental request is a much needed recovery effort and helps lay the groundwork on which the strategy review will build. Favorable and prompt consideration of this request will help achieve this objective. This transmittal also contains FY 2001 supplemental proposals for the Legislative Branch. In the spirit of comity with the Congress, the supplemental requests for the Legislative Branch are transmitted as proposed by Congress. The details of these actions are set forth in the enclosed letter from the Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with his comments and observations. To facilitate the orderly conduct of operations, I urge the Congress to expeditiously enact appropriations as requested before the scheduled July recess. Sincerely, George W. Bush. Enclosure. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
