                             to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                         Washington, July 16, 2004.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: In order to ensure the most effective 
counter-proliferation capabilities of the United States and 
respond effectively to the ongoing threat of terrorist 
activity, I am notifying the Congress of my intent to transfer 
$10 million from funds provided in Public Law 107-38, the 2001 
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Recovery from and 
Response to Terrorist Acts on the United States, to the 
Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United 
States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction (the 
``Commission'').
    These funds are necessary to support the essential 
activities of the Commission in assessing the capabilities and 
challenges of the intelligence community regarding the threat 
of weapons of mass destruction.
    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. 8, 108th Cong. 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                     Washington, DC, July 15, 2004.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration is a request to transfer 
funds provided in P.L. 107-38, the 2001 Emergency Supplemental 
Appropriations Act for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist 
Attacks on the United States, to 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 of weapons of mass destruction, 
particularly in light of the September 11, 2001 terrorist 
attacks and the ongoing threat of terrorist activity. On March 
12, 2004, you notified Congress of your intent to make 
available immediately to the Commission $4 million of the funds 
provided in P.L. 107-38 to support the Commission's lease of 
office space and other initial start-up costs. At this time, an 
additional $10 million is necessary for the Commission to carry 
out its mission to assess the capabilities and challenges of 
the intelligence community regarding the threat of weapons of 
mass destruction. Therefore, I recommend transferring $10 
million from the unallocated balance of funds provided in P.L. 
107-38 to the Commission.
    Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, the requested funds will be made 
available 15 days after the transmittal of this request.
    I have carefully reviewed this proposal and am satisfied 
that it is necessary at this time. 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.....     $10,000,000

    On March 12, 2004, Congress was notified of the President's 
intention to make available $4 million of the funds provided in 
P.L. 107-38, the 2001 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act 
for recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the 
United States, to the Commission on the Intelligence 
Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass 
Destruction (Commission) for initial start-up costs.
    The additional $10 million would be used by the Commission 
to support its ongoing work. The Commission's mission 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 
individuals.
    Pursuant to P.L. 107-38, all of these funds will be made 
available 15 days after the transmittal of this request.
