                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, March 12, 2004.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I am notifying the Congress of my intent 
to use funds provided in Public Law 107-38, the Emergency 
Supplemental Appropriations Act for Recovery from and Response 
to Terrorist Attacks on the United States, FY 2001, for the 
Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United 
States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (the 
``Commission'').
    At this time, $4 million will be transferred from the 
Emergency Response Fund for the Commission. As provided in 
Public Law 107-38, these funds will be made available to the 
Commission immediately.
    The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed 
letter from the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
    Enclosure.
                [Estimate No. 3, 108th Cong., 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, March 11, 2004.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to use funds 
provided in P.L. 107-38, the Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations Act for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist 
Attacks on the United States, FY 2001, for the Commission on 
the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding 
Weapons of Mass Destruction (``Commission'').
    On February 6, 2004, you signed an Executive Order creating 
the Commission to advise you as to whether the intelligence 
community is sufficiently authorized, organized, equipped, 
trained, and resourced to permit the United States to respond 
to the proliferation and use of weapons of mass destruction, 
particularly in light of September 11, 2001, and the ongoing 
threat of terrorist activities. I recommend using $4 million 
from the remaining Emergency Response Fund resources provided 
in P.L. 107-38 to support the Commission's lease of office 
space and other startup costs. After the Commission finalizes 
its total resource requirements, I will recommend to you 
additional sources of funding.
    Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, no further congressional action 
would be required for this initial $4 million, which would be 
made available for the Commission immediately.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I recommend your 
approval of the request.
            Sincerely,
                                        Joshua B. Bolten, Director.
    Enclosure.

Amounts Previously Appropriated To Be Transferred by the President From 
                      the Emergency Response Fund

Executive Office of the President
    Office of Administration: Salaries and Expenses.....      $4,000,000

    These initial funds would be used by the Commission on the 
Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding 
Weapons of Mass Destruction for startup costs, which include 
the lease of office space, provision of security 
accommodations, information technology investments, and 
personnel expenses. The Commission's mission, in order to 
ensure the most effective counter proliferation capabilities of 
the United States, and in response to the September 11, 2001 
terrorist attacks and the ongoing threat of terrorist activity, 
is to advise the President on whether the Intelligence 
Community is sufficiently authorized, organized, equipped, 
trained, and resourced to identify, warn of, and support U.S. 
Government response to the proliferation of Weapons of Mass 
Destruction and other related threats of the 21st Century and 
their employment by foreign powers including terrorists, 
terrorist organizations, and private networks, or other 
entities or other entities or individuals.
    Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, no further congressional action is 
required and these funds will be made available immediately.
