 May 9, 2003.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered 
                             to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                           Washington, May 9, 2003.
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 Departments of Agriculture, Energy, Housing 
and Urban Development, the Interior, Justice, Labor, and 
Transportation; the Office of Personnel Management; and the 
Farm Credit Administration. I also ask the Congress to consider 
the enclosed proposals for the Department of the Interior and 
the Social Security Administration.
    This transmittal also contains FY 2004 budget amendments 
for the Legislative Branch. Appropriations requests of the 
Legislative Branch are historically transmitted without change.
    Further, in accordance with provisions of Public Law 108-
11, the FY 2003 Emergency Wartime Supplemental Appropriations 
Act, I hereby request and make available $280.0 million for the 
Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the Department 
of Homeland Security. Consistent with the Act, TSA would 
utilize these resources solely for expenses incurred to hire, 
train, and deploy initial passenger screeners.
    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.
               [Estimate No. 10, 108th Cong., 1st Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                       Washington, DC, May 8, 2003.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are requests for FY 2004 
budget amendments for the Departments of Agriculture, Energy, 
Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Justice, Labor, 
and Transportation; the Office of Personnel Management; the 
Farm Credit Administration; and the Legislative Branch. In 
addition, this transmittal includes a proposal for the 
Department of the Interior and the Social Security 
Administration and makes available previously appropriated 
funds for the Department of Homeland Security. Overall, the 
discretionary budget authority proposed in your FY 2004 Budget 
would increase by $6.0 million, excluding the budget authority 
changes for the Legislative Branch.
Department of the Interior (DOI) and Other Proposals
    <bullet> $6.0 million is proposed for the Central Utah 
Project (CUP) to mitigate project impacts. Previously, this 
funding was appropriated to the Department of Energy's Western 
Area Power Administration for payment to DOI. This amendment is 
necessary to correctly reflect the policy proposed in your FY 
2004 Budget to transfer the authority and appropriation for 
payments to CUP from the Department of Energy directly to DOI.
    <bullet> Several other technical language amendments to 
your FY 2004 Budget are included in this transmittal for the 
Departments of Agriculture, Housing and Urban Development, the 
Interior, Justice, Labor, and Transportation; as well as the 
Office of Personnel and the Farm Credit Administration. Each 
proposal is described in detail in the enclosures.
    <bullet> Language is proposed for DOI that would adjust the 
Endangered Species program spending caps for critical habitat 
designations to comply with listing obligations as directed by 
the courts.
    <bullet> Language is also proposed for the Social Security 
Administration that would permit implementation of the Black 
Lung Consolidation of Responsibility Act.
FY 2003 Contingent Release
    <bullet> A request to make available $280.0 million in 
previously appropriated contingent funds for the Transportation 
Security Administration (TSA) within the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS) is also submitted for your consideration. These 
funds were made contingent upon your submission of a budget 
request to the Congress, and on TSA's transmittal of an 
approved FY 2003 execution plan that includes this funding. 
TSA's plan will be sent to the Congress separately by DHS.
Legislative Branch
    <bullet> This transmittal also includes FY 2004 amendments 
for the Legislative Branch. Appropriations requests for the 
Legislative Branch are historically transmitted without change. 
In total, these amendments would increase discretionary 
resources included in the FY 2004 Budget by $26.9 million.
Recommendation
    I have reviewed these proposals and am satisfied that they 
are necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the heads of the 
affected Departments and agencies in recommending that you 
transmit the proposals to the Congress.
            Sincerely,
                                   Mitchell E. Daniels, Jr.
                                                          Director.
    Enclosures.

FY 2004 Pending Request: $196,465,000
Proposed Amendment: $139,498,000
Revised Request: $335,963,000

    This proposal would amend the pending appropriations 
language to reflect correctly the rule and subsidy rates for 
the authorized Broadband Program assumed in the FY 2004 Budget.
    The proposed budget totals would not be affected by this 
technical language amendment.

FY 2004 Pending Request: --
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: --

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete the proviso beginning with the colon, up to the period.)
    This proposal is necessary to correctly reflect the policy 
proposed in the FY 2004 Budget to transfer the authority and 
appropriation for payments to the Central Utah Project from the 
Secretary of Energy directly to the Secretary of the Interior.
    This amendment would not affect FY 2004 outlays.


              DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT


                 ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISION, SECTION 201

FY 2004 Budget Appendix Page: 520
FY 2004 Pending Request: --
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: --

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete the word ``striking'' and substitute ``inserting'' the 
first time it appears. Delete the words ``, and inserting in 
lieu thereof the words, `at least',''.)
    This proposal would correctly reflect the fixed minimum 
rent requirement of $50 for non-elderly, non-disabled recipient 
households assumed in the FY 2004 Budget. The minimum rent 
provision would apply only to households headed by an able-
bodied working age individual and is intended to promote work 
and increase equity in the treatment of recipient households 
with similar needs.
    This amendment would not affect FY 2004 outlays.

                CENTRAL UTAH PROJECT COMPLETION ACCOUNT

FY 2004 Budget Appendix page: 553
FY 2004 Pending Request: $36,363,000
Proposed Amendment: $6,000,000
Revised Request: $42,463,000

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete ``$36,463,000'' and substitute $42,463,000; delete 
``$9,423,000'' and substitute $15,423,000, and insert the 
language that follows after ``Commission''.)
    : Provided, That section 402(b)(3)(B) of the Reclamation 
Projects Authorization and Adjustment Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-
575), is amended to read as follows: ``(B) $6,000,000 annually 
by the Secretary of the Interior from funds authorized to be 
appropriated by section 12 of the Colorado River Storage Act, 
as amended (43 U.S.C. Sec. 620k)''.
    This amendment would correct an inadvertent omission from 
the FY 2004 Budget. The FY 2004 Budget policy assumed that the 
authority--and associated appropriations--for the Western Area 
Power Administration (WAPA), to mitigate for impact related to 
Central Utah Project (CUP) facilities, would be transferred to 
the Department of the Interior (DOI). While the appropriations 
language in the FY 2004 Budget for WAPA reflected this 
realignment, the appropriations language for DOI did not.
    Currently, WAPA pays $6 million annually to CUP, and 
through them to the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and 
Conservation Commission, to mitigate CUP project impacts. The 
current WAPA payment is not reimbursable from project 
beneficiaries; rather, these funds are appropriated directly 
from the General Fund of the Treasury. Although P.L. 102-575 
intended that project beneficiaries should pay for project 
mitigation costs, by making the costs non-reimbursable, the law 
resulted in general taxpayer rather than beneficiary payments. 
Absent a revision in the law to make these payments 
reimbursable by project beneficiaries, there is no compelling 
reason to have the mitigation costs come from WAPA.
    The $6 million will be more reliably appropriated if the 
mitigation funds are directly included in the CUP request, 
instead of the WAPA request, since in WAPA's view the payments 
do not mitigate any of WAPA's project impacts.
    This proposal would increase FY 2004 outlays by $1.8 
million.

FY 2004 Budget Appendix Page: 611
FY 2004 Pending Request: $785,689,000
Proposed Amendment: $16,508,000
Revised Request: $802,197,000

    This technical amendment would correctly reflect the 
funding to be available for transfer to the Salaries and 
Expenses, United States Marshals Service account, to pay for 
the cost of boarding federal detainees in State and local jails 
and private institutions before and during trials, and prior to 
transporting to federal prisons after conviction.
    The proposed budget totals would not be affected by this 
amendment.


                          DEPARTMENT OF LABOR


                  Employment Standards Administration


                         SALARIES AND EXPENSES

FY 2004 Budget Appendix Page: 659
FY 2004 Pending Request: --
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: --

    (In the appropriations language under the above heading, 
delete ``2003'' from the reference to the Treasury and General 
Government Appropriations Act, and substitute 2004.)
    Section 630 of the FY 2004 Budget's proposed Government-
wide general provisions, authorizes the Department of Labor 
(DOL) to bill Federal agencies for their share of Federal 
Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) administrative costs. DOL's 
proposed FY 2004 Employment Standards Administration, Salaries 
and Expenses appropriations language provides authority to 
spend the surcharge revenue. However, this language incorrectly 
cites the proposed surcharge authority as section 630 of the FY 
2003 Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act, rather 
than the FY 2004 Act. This amendment would correct this error.
