to the Speaker of the House of Representatives
April 3, 2003
In order to continue the investigation into the September 11, 2001, terrorist
attacks on the United States, I am notifying the Congress of my intent to reallocate
funds previously transferred from the Emergency Response Fund (ERF).
At this time, $9 million of ERF funds will be transferred to the National
Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States to ensure that it
has the necessary resources to investigate fully the terrible tragedy of
September 11, 2001. My Adminis-tration is strongly committed to the purpose
and mission of the Commission and will continue to cooperate with the Commission
in accordance with applicable law to help ensure that it succeeds. I expect
that the Commission's final report will contain impor-tant recommendations.
The details of this action are set forth in the enclosed letter from the
Director of the Office of Management and Budget. I concur with his comments
