President Requests $2.8 Billion Amendment To Budget For Haiti Relief

Following  is a letter from the President to the Speaker of the House regarding the budget supplemental on Haiti.

 
TEXT OF A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
TO THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
March 24, 2010
Dear Madam Speaker:
I ask the Congress to consider the enclosed amendments to
Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 proposals in my FY 2011 Budget. Included
are amendments for the Departments of Agriculture, Defense,
Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, State, and the
Treasury, as well as the United States Agency for International
Development and the Broadcasting Board of Governors. These
amendments would provide for costs associated with relief and
reconstruction support for Haiti following the devastating
earthquake of January 12, 2010, including reimbursement of
obligations that have already been incurred by these agencies.
The proposed totals for FY 2010 in my FY 2011 Budget would
increase by $2.8 billion as a result of these amendments.
This request responds to urgent and essential needs. Therefore,
I request these proposals be considered as emergency requirements.
The details of these amendments are set forth in the enclosed
letter from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.
Sincerely,
BARACK OBAMA
