Hon. J. Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Mr. Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the enclosed amendments to the Administration's FY 2004 budget submission for the Department of Defense. In total, these amendments would not affect the budgetary resources proposed in my FY 2004 Budget. The details of this proposal 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. [Estimate No. 9, 108th Cong., 1st Sess.] Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC, April 30, 2003. The President, The White House. Submitted for your consideration is a request for FY 2004 budget amendments for the Department of Defense (DoD). The amendments in this transmittal would not affect the budgetary resources proposed in your FY 2004 Budget. As described below and in more detail in the enclosures, the request amends the FY 2004 Budget to support the infrastructure necessary to execute changes in the U.S. defense strategy. In March 2003, the Secretary of Defense asked the Combatant Commanders to review the FY 2003 and FY 2004 military construction projects and recommend changes to support their changing priorities. Initial review has indicated that the military construction funding appropriated in FY 2003 and requested in FY 2004 should be amended to support changes in the overseas basing strategy. Funding requirements in Germany are reduced, funding requirements in Korea are reallocated, and funding for bases in the U.S. has been increased. The attached proposal funds new construction projects totaling $343 million in FY 2004. These increases are financed by rescinding $153 million of funds appropriated in the FY 2003 Military Construction Appropriations Act, and deleting $190 million for projects in the FY 2004 Budget, which no longer support the needs of DoD. The amendment also realigns $108 million of FY 2000 and FY 2003 funds and $105 million of FY 2004 funds for projects between various locations in the Republic of Korea. <bullet> Military Construction, Army: The amendment would provide $122 million for new FY 2004 requirements by rescinding $66 million in FY 2003 and deleting $56 million in FY 2004. The amendment also would realign $181 million in FY 2000, FY 2003, and FY 2004 for construction projects within the Republic of Korea. <bullet> Family Housing Construction, Army: The amendment would provide $102 million for new FY 2004 requirements by rescinding $52 million in FY 2003 and deleting $50 million in FY 2004. <bullet> Military Construction, Navy: The proposal would fund a new $15 million requirement in FY 2004 by rescinding a like amount in FY 2003. <bullet> Military Construction, Air Force and Family Housing Construction, Air Force: The amendment would provide $78 million for new FY 2004 requirements by rescinding $19 million in FY 2003 housing construction funds, deleting $39 million in FY 2004 housing construction funds, and deleting $20 million in FY 2004 military construction funds. <bullet> Military Construction, Defense-Wide and Procurement, Defense-Wide: The proposal would provide $26 million for a new FY 2004 construction project and for planning and design work by rescinding $1 million in FY 2003 military construction project funds and deleting $25 million from a FY 2004 procurement proposal. The amendment also would realign $32 million in FY 2003 for a construction project within the Republic of Korea. I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied that it is necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the Secretary of Defense in recommending that you transmit the proposed amendments to the Congress. Sincerely, Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr., Director.
