   January 3, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, December 18, 2000.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives.
    Sir: In accordance with provisions of the FY 2000 Emergency 
Supplemental Act, as included in Public Law 106-246, I hereby 
request and make available appropriations of $155,650,000 in 
budget authority for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance 
Program of the Department of Health and Human Services. These 
funds will enable the Department to address the needs of all 
States due to continuing, substantial increases in heating fuel 
prices.
    I designate the $155,650,000 made available today 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,
                                                William J. Clinton.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 27, 106th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                 Washington, DC, December 18, 2000.
ThePresident,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to make 
available $155.6 million in emergency appropriations for the 
Department of Health and Human Services. Your approval of this 
request would make available previously appropriated funds to 
the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) to help 
all States address the needs of low-income households that are 
facing continuing, substantial increases in heating fuel 
prices, with a majority of funds distributed to the colder 
weather States of the Northeast and Midwest.
    The FY 2000 Emergency Supplemental Act, as included in 
Public Law 106-246, provided $600.0 million for LIHEAP, 
contingent upon the President submitting a budget request to 
the Congress and designating the entire amount requested as an 
emergency requirement. To date, you have released a total of 
$444.4 million of this emergency funding. In September, you 
released $400.0 million to all States to respond to increases 
in heating fuel prices. In July and August, you released $44.4 
million to address the needs of low-income households in eight 
southern States arising from extremely hot weather conditions; 
low-income households in Alaska needing assistance with fuel 
costs in light of the fisheries disaster; and, low-income 
households in California facing extremely high electricity 
prices.
    I recommend that you designate this request for $155.6 
million as an emergency funding 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 Health and Human Services 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.

Emergency Appropriations: Amounts Previously Appropriated Made Available 
                            by the President

Department of Health and Human Services

Administration for Children and Families:
    Low income home energy assistance program...........    $155,650,000

    The FY 2000 Emergency Supplemental Act, as included in 
Public Law 106-246, provided $600,000,000 for the Low Income 
Home Energy Assistance Program, contingent upon the President 
submitting a budget request to the Congress and designating the 
entire amount requested as an emergency requirement.
    Of the $600,000,000 in contingent emergency appropriations 
provided by Public Law 106-246, $444,350,000 has been 
designated as an emergency requirement and made available. At 
this time, the remaining $155,650,000 in contingent funding is 
required to support the needs of low-income households 
throughout the United States arising from continuing, 
substantial increases in heating fuel prices. These funds will 
enable all States to assist low-income households affected by 
price increases that have occurred throughout the country and 
will provide additional assistance to the States in proportion 
to their usage of heating oil, natural gas, and propane.
