  September 8, 2014.--Referred to the Committee on Appropriations and 
                         ordered to be printed
                                           The White House,
                                        Washington, August 4, 2014.
Hon. John Boehner,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: I hereby designate as an emergency 
requirement all funding so designated by the Congress in the 
Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Resolution, 2014, 
pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended, for the 
following account: ``Department of Defense--Procurement--
Procurement, Defense-Wide.''
    The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed 
memorandum from the Director of the Office of Management and 
Budget.

            Sincerely,
                                                      Barack Obama.
                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                    Washington, DC, August 4, 2014.

                      MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT

From: Shaun Donovan, Director.
Subject: Designation of Funding as an Emergency Requirement.

    Congress designated as an emergency requirement all funding 
in the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Resolution, 2014 
(Act). The Act provides $225 million in emergency supplemental 
funding for the Secretary of Defense to provide to the 
Government of Israel for the procurement of the Iron Dome 
defense system to counter short-range rocket threats in Fiscal 
Year (FY) 2014.
    I recommend that you designate as an emergency requirement 
all funding so designated by the Congress in the Act pursuant 
to section 251(b)(2)(A)(i) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended (BBEDCA), for the 
following account: ``Department of Defense--Procurement--
Procurement, Defense-Wide.'' Upon making this designation, 
these funds will be immediately available for obligation and 
expenditure as emergency funds. No further congressional action 
will be required.
    The designation of these funds as an emergency requirement 
allows for adjustments to the discretionary spending limits in 
FY 2014, as specified in section 251(b)(2)(A) of BBEDCA. These 
adjustments will be reflected when the Office of Management and 
Budget submits its sequestration update report for FY 2015 
under section 254(e) of BBEDCA.
    I have reviewed this proposed action and am satisfied it is 
necessary at this time. Therefore, I recommend that you sign 
the attached draft letters to the Speaker of the House of 
Representatives and the President of the Senate.
    Attachment
