September 19, 2001.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and ordered to be printed __________ U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE 89-012 WASHINGTON : 2001 The White House, Washington, September 18, 2001. Hon. J. Dennis Hastert, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Washington, DC. Dear Mr. Speaker: The House and Senate have just passed-- and I have signed into law--the 2001 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act for Recovery from and Response to Terrorist Attacks on the United States. This Act will allow the United States to respond swiftly and surely to the evil and despicable acts of terror that were perpetrated against our fellow citizens. We will do so in a way that will make Americans proud. This important legislation provides $40 billion to provide assistance to the victims of the September 11th attacks and to deal with the consequences of the attacks. The Act was crafted and enacted with strong bipartisan cooperation, and I intend to continue our work with such a bipartisan spirit in the coming days and months, including consulting with the Congress on the allocation of the funds as required by the Act. Pursuant to the requirements in the Act, I hereby request and designate the entire amount provided as an emergency requirement pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended. Sincerely, George W. Bush. Enclosure. Executive Office of the President, Office of Management and Budget, Washington, DC, September 14, 2001. The President, The White House.
