107th Congress, 1st Session - - - - - - - - - - - House Document 107-92 DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BUDGET REQUESTS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2002 __________ COMMUNICATION from THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES transmitting REQUESTS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2002 BUDGET AMENDMENTS FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> June 28, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed The White House, Washington, June 27, 2001. The Speaker of the House of Representatives. Sir: I ask the Congress to consider the enclosed requests for FY 2002 budget amendments for the Department of Defense (DoD). These amendments would increase my proposed budget totals by $18.4 billion in support of national defense priorities. In this amended DoD budget request, I am proposing a total of $328.9 billion in discretionary budget authority. This is $32.6 billion, or seven percent in real growth, above the FY 2001 enacted level of $296.3 billion and $18.4 billion more than included in my initial budget level of $310.5 billion. The revised FY 2002 Budget begins to address severe shortfalls in readiness, healthcare, operations, maintenance, and infrastructure that my Administration inherited and that are far worse than originally understood. The amended budget's increase of $18.4 billion helps remedy previously underfunded programs, reduces critical military shortfalls, funds realistic reestimates of previously understated costs, and supports modernization programs consistent with the early results of Secretary Rumsfeld's ongoing strategy review. The amended budget carefully targets resources to improve military morale, bolster readiness, and transform defense capabilities. It begins efforts to streamline and upgrade the deteriorating DoD infrastructure, which will help boost morale and readiness, support transformation, and ultimately save billions of dollars. And, it initiates several management reform initiatives to change the way DoD conducts business. 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. <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
