                                     Washington, February 12, 2010.
Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Madam Speaker: I ask the Congress to consider the 
enclosed Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Budget amendments for the 
Departments of Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human 
Services, the Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the 
National Aeronautics and Space Administration. These amendments 
will increase by $155 million the overall discretionary budget 
authority in my FY 2011 Budget.
    These amendments are necessary to reflect correctly 
policies assumed in the FY 2011 Budget. 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.
    Enclosure.
                 [Estimate No. 1, 111th Cong. 2d Sess.]

                 Executive Office of the President,
                           Office of Management and Budget,
                                 Washington, DC, February 12, 2010.
The President,
The White House.
    Submitted for your consideration are amendments to your 
Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Budget for the Departments of Defense, 
Energy, Health and Human Services, the Treasury, and Veterans 
Affairs, as well as the National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration. These amendments are necessary to reflect 
correctly policies assumed in your FY 2011 Budget. They will 
increase by $155 million the overall discretionary budget 
authority in your FY 2011 Budget.
Recommendation
    I have reviewed these amendments and am satisfied that they 
are necessary at this time. Therefore, I join the heads of the 
affected Departments and agency in recommending that you 
transmit the proposals to the Congress.
            Sincerely,
                                           Peter R. Orszag,
                                                          Director.

FY 2011 Budget Appendix Page: 265
FY 2011 Pending Request: $5,000,000
Proposed Amendment: Language
Revised Request: $5,000,000

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, insert 
the following new language:)
    For expenses directly relating to Overseas Contingency 
Operations, $5,000,000, to remain available for obligation 
until expended: Provided, That of the funds made available 
under this heading, the Secretary of Defense may transfer these 
funds to military personnel accounts; operation and maintenance 
accounts, including Overseas Humanitarian, Disaster, and Civic 
Aid; the defense health program appropriation; procurement 
accounts; research, development, test and evaluation accounts; 
and working capital fund accounts: Provided further, That the 
funds transferred shall be merged with and shall be available 
for the same purposes and for the same time period as the 
appropriation to which transferred: Provided further, That upon 
a determination that all or part of the funds transferred from 
this appropriation are not necessary for the purposes provided 
herein, such amounts may be transferred back to this 
appropriation and shall be available for the same purposes and 
for the same time period as originally appropriated: Provided 
further, That the Secretary shall notify the congressional 
defense committees 15 days prior to such transfer: Provided 
further, That the transfer authority provide in this paragraph 
is in addition to any other transfer authority contained 
elsewhere in this act.
    This amendment would insert appropriations language that 
was omitted inadvertently from the FY 2011 Budget to reflect 
correctly the policy assumed in the Budget. The proposed Budget 
totals would not be affected by this language amendment.

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    SEC. [119]115. In addition to any other transfer authority 
available to the Department of Defense, proceeds deposited to 
the Department of Defense Base Closure Account established by 
section 207(a)(1) of the Defense Authorization Amendments and 
Base Closure and Realignment Act (10 U.S.C. 2687 note) pursuant 
to section 207(a)(2)(C) of such Act, may be transferred to the

Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 (10 U.S.C. 2687 note), to

the same time period as that account.

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    SEC. [120]116. Subject to 30 days prior notification, or 14 
days for a notification provided in an electronic medium 
pursuant to sections 480 and 2883, of title 10, United States 
Code, to the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress, such additional amounts as may be determined by the 
Secretary of Defense may be transferred to: (1) the Department 
of Defense Family Housing Improvement Fund from amounts 
appropriated for construction in ``Family Housing'' accounts, 
to be merged with and to be available for the same purposes and 
for the same period of time as amounts appropriated directly to 
the Fund; or (2) the Department of Defense Military 
Unaccompanied Housing Improvement Fund from amounts 
appropriated for construction of military unaccompanied housing 
in ``Military Construction'' accounts, to be merged with and to 
be available for the same purposes and for the same period of 
time as amounts appropriated directly to the Fund: Provided, 
That appropriations made available to the Funds shall be 
available to cover the costs, as defined in section 502(5) of 
the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, of direct loans or loan 
guarantees issued by the Department of Defense pursuant to the 
provisions of subchapter IV of chapter 169 of title 10, United

          (A) the closure or realignment of the installation 
        for which housing is provided under the contract;
          (B) a reduction in force of units stationed at such

    (2) Each notice under this subsection shall specify the 
nature of the guarantee involved and assess the extent and 
likelihood, if any, of the liability of the Federal Government 
with respect to the guarantee.]

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    SEC. [122]117. In addition to any other transfer authority 
available to the Department of Defense, amounts may be 
transferred from the accounts established by sections 
2906(a)(1) and 2906A(a)(1) of the Defense Base Closure and 
Realignment Act of 1990 (10 U.S.C. 2687 note), to the fund 
established by section 1013(d) of the Demonstration Cities and 
Metropolitan Development Act of 1966 (42 U.S.C. 3374) to pay 
for expenses associated with the Homeowners Assistance Program 
incurred under 42 U.S.C. 3374(a)(1)(A). Any amounts transferred 
shall be merged with and be available for the same purposes and 
for the same time period as the fund to which transferred.
    SEC. [123]118. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
funds made available in this title or operation and maintenance 
of family housing shall be the exclusive source of funds for 
repair and maintenance of all family housing units, including

prior notification, or 14 days for a notification provided in 
an electronic medium pursuant to sections 480 and 2883 of title 
10, United States Code, to the Committees on Appropriations of 
both Houses of Congress, except that an after-the-fact 
notification shall be submitted if the limitation is exceeded 
solely due to costs associated with environmental remediation 
that could not be reasonably anticipated at the time of the 
budget submission[: Provided further, That the Under Secretary 
of Defense (Comptroller) is to report annually to the 
Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of Congress all 
operation and maintenance expenditures for each individual 
general or flag officer quarters for the prior fiscal year].
    SEC. [124]119. Amounts contained in the Ford Island 
Improvement Account established by subsection (h) of section 
2814 of title 10, United States Code, are appropriated and 
shall be available until expended for the purposes specified in 
subsection (i)(1) of such section or until transferred pursuant 
to subsection (i)(3) of such section.

                    [(INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)]

    [SEC. 125. None of the funds made available in this title, 
or in any Act making appropriations for military construction 
which remain available for obligation, may be obligated or 
expended to carry out a military construction, land 
acquisition, or family housing project at or for a military 
installation approved for closure, or at a military 
installation for the purposes of supporting a function that has 
been approved for realignment to another installation, in 2005 
under the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 
(part A of title XXIX of Public Law 101-510; 10 U.S.C. 2687 
note), unless such a project at a military installation 
approved for realignment will support a continuing mission or 
function at that installation or a new mission or function that 
is planned for that installation, or unless the Secretary of 
Defense certifies that the cost to the United States of 
carrying out such project would be less than the cost to the 
United States of cancelling such project, or if the project is 
at an active component base that shall be established as an 
enclave or in the case of projects having multi-agency use, 
that another Government agency has indicated it will assume 
ownership of the completed project. The Secretary of Defense 
may not transfer funds made available as a result of this 
limitation from any military construction project, land 
acquisition, or family housing project to another account or 
use such funds for another purpose or project without the prior 
approval of the Committees on Appropriations of both Houses of 
Congress. This section shall not apply to military construction 
projects, land acquisition, or family housing projects for 
which the project is vital to the national security or the 
protection of health, safety, or environmental quality: 
Provided, That the Secretary of Defense shall notify the 
congressional defense committees within seven days of a 
decision to carry out such a military construction project.]

                     (INCLUDING TRANSFER OF FUNDS)

    SEC. [126]120. During the 5-year period after 
appropriations available in this Act to the Department of 
Defense for military construction and family housing operation 
and maintenance and construction have expired for obligation, 
upon a determination that such appropriations will not be 
necessary for the liquidation of obligations or for making 
authorized adjustments to such appropriations for obligations 
incurred during the period of availability of such 
appropriations, unobligated balances of such appropriations may 
be transferred into the appropriation ``Foreign Currency 
Fluctuations, Construction, Defense'', to be merged with and to 
be available for the same time period and for the same purposes 
as the appropriation to which transferred.
    [SEC. 127. None of the funds appropriated or otherwise made 
available in this title may be used for any action that is 
related to or promotes the expansion of the boundaries or size 
of the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site, Colorado.]
    [SEC. 128. Amounts appropriated or otherwise made available 
in an account funded under the headings in this title may be 
transferred among projects and activities within the account in 
accordance with the reprogramming guidelines for military 
construction and family housing construction contained in the 
explanatory statement of managers to accompany this Act and in 
the guidance for military construction reprogrammings and 
notifications contained in Department of Defense Financial 
Management Regulation 7000.14-R, Volume 3, Chapter 7, of 
December 1996, as in effect on the date of enactment of this 
Act.]
    [SEC. 129. Of the funds made available in this title, the 
following accounts are hereby reduced in the following amounts 
to reflect adjusted inflation and bid savings projections: 
``Military Construction, Army'', $230,000,000; ``Military 
Construction, Navy and Marine Corps'', $235,000,000; and 
``Military Construction, Air Force'', $64,091,000.]
    [SEC. 130. Of the funds made available under the following 
headings in Public Law 110-329, the following amounts 
associated with unobligated balances are hereby rescinded: 
``Military Construction, Army'', $33,000,000; ``Military 
Construction, Navy and Marine Corps'', $51,468,000; ``Military 
Construction, Defense-Wide'', $93,268,000; ``Military 
Construction, Army National Guard'', $33,000,000; and 
``Military Construction, Air National Guard'', $7,000,000.] 
(Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act, 2010.)
    This amendment would insert the Administrative Provisions 
for the Department of Defense that were omitted inadvertently 
from the FY 2011 Budget to reflect correctly the policy assumed 
in the Budget. The proposed Budget totals would not be affected 
by this language amendment.

FY 2011 Pending Request: $492,488,000
Proposed Amendment: -$2,696,100
Revised Request: $489,791,900

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$492,488,000'' and substitute $489,791,900.)
    This amendment would decrease the request by almost $3 
million for the Program Administration account to reflect 
correctly the policy assumed in the Budget. Additional funding 
for the acquisition workforce initiative was provided in 
section 307 of the Department of Education General Provisions. 
However, this funding was erroneously double counted in the 
appropriations language for the Program Administration account.
    This amendment seeks to make the legislative language 
consistent with the Budget totals. As such, those totals would 
not be affected by the transmittal of this amendment.

Revised Request: $5,588,039,000

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$5,563,039,000'' and substitute $5,588,039,000.)
    This amendment would increase the request by $25.0 million 
for the Department of Energy's Environmental Management 
program. The additional funds would be used to protect human 
health and the environment by demolishing radioactively 
contaminated facilities at the Y-12 site on the Department's 
Oak Ridge Reservation in Tennessee. This amendment would insert 
both appropriations language and funding that was omitted 
inadvertently from the FY 2011 Budget to reflect correctly the 
policy assumed in the Budget.
    This amendment would increase budget authority by $25.0 
million and increase outlays by $17.5 million in FY 2011.

``$708,498,000'' and substitute $730,498,000.)
    This amendment would increase the request by $22.0 million 
for the Department of Energy's Environmental Management 
program. The additional funds would be used to protect human 
health and the environment by demolishing radioactively 
contaminated facilities at the East Tennessee Technology Park 
site on the Department's Oak Ridge Reservation in Tennessee. 
This amendment would insert both appropriations language and 
funding that was omitted inadvertently from the FY 2011 Budget 
to reflect correctly the policy assumed in the Budget.
    This amendment would increase budget authority by $22.0 
million and increase outlays by $15.4 million in FY 2011.

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$3,699,611,000'' and substitute $3,707,611,000.)
    This amendment would increase the request for the Food and 
Drug Administration, Salaries and Expenses account by $8 
million to reflect correctly the policy assumed in the FY 2011 
Budget. The funds would be used to support food program 
activities based on section 728 of the FY 2010 Agriculture, 
Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related 
Agencies Appropriations Act (Public Law 111-80).
    The amendment would increase budget authority by $8 million 
and increase outlays by $7 million in FY 2011.

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$7,501,658,000'' and substitute $7,601,658,000, and add the 
following new language immediately before the period:)
: Provided further, That of the funds made available under this 
heading, $100,000,000 shall be for grants to assist in the 
development of medical schools, including the construction and 
acquisition of property and facilities, in designated health 
professional shortage areas
    This request would increase the Health Resources and 
Services account by $100 million to reflect correctly the 
funding for the account. The funds would be used to assist in 
the development of medical schools in federally-designated 
health professional shortage areas (under section 332 of the 
Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 254e)). This amendment 
would insert both appropriations language and funding that was 
omitted inadvertently from the FY 2011 Budget to reflect 
correctly the policy assumed in the Budget.
    The amendment would increase budget authority by $100 
million and increase outlays by $39 million in FY 2011.

    This amendment would decrease the request by $2.5 million 
for the Departmental Offices, Salaries and Expenses account to 
reflect correctly the policy assumed in the Budget. Additional 
funding for the acquisition workforce initiative was provided 
in section 619 of the Department of the Treasury General 
Provisions. However, this funding was erroneously double 
counted in the appropriations language for the Salaries and 
Expenses account.
    This amendment seeks to make the legislative language 
consistent with the Budget totals. As such, those totals would 
not be affected by the transmittal of this amendment.

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
newly inserted sections 226, 227 and 228 and substitute with 
the following new section 226:)

SEC. 226. CANCELLATION AND APPROPRIATION

    (a) Of the funds appropriated in the Military Construction 
and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2010 (Public Law 111-117, Division E), the following amounts 
which become available on October 1, 2010 are hereby 
permanently cancelled from the following accounts in the 
amounts specified:
          ``Medical Services'', Department of Veterans Affairs, 
        $1,600,000,000;
          ``Medical Support and Compliance'', Department of 
        Veterans Affairs, $250,000,000; and
          ``Medical Facilities'', Department of Veterans 
        Affairs, $350,000,000.
    (b) An additional amount is appropriated to the following 
accounts in the amounts specified, to become available on 
October 1, 2010 and to remain available until September 30, 
2012:
          ``Medical Services'', Department of Veterans Affairs, 
        $1,600,000,000;
          ``Medical Support and Compliance'', Department of 
        Veterans Affairs, $250,000,000; and
          ``Medical Facilities'', Department of Veterans 
        Affairs, $350,000,000.
    This amendment would clarify that the language transmitted 
with the FY 2011 Budget as sections 226, 227 and 228 of the 
general provisions for the Department of Veterans Affairs was 
not intended to be a reappropriation of funds. Rather than 
simply extending the period of availability through FY 2012, 
the clarification instead permanently cancels the funding that 
was appropriated for FY 2011 in the FY 2010 Military 
Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies 
Appropriations Act (Public Law 111-117) and newly appropriates 
the funds with the longer period of availability. The proposed 
Budget totals would not be affected by this language amendment.

                          CROSS AGENCY SUPPORT

FY 2011 Budget Appendix Pages: 1173-1174
FY 2011 Pending Request: $3,111,400,000
Proposed Amendment: -$3,592,000
Revised Request: $3,107,808,000

(In the appropriations language under the above heading, delete 
``$3,111,400,000'' and substitute $3,107,808,000.)
    This amendment would decrease the request by almost $4 
million for the Cross Agency Support (CAS) account to reflect 
correctly the policy assumed in the Budget. Additional funding 
for the acquisition workforce initiative was provided in 
section 526 of the Department of Commerce General Provisions. 
However, this funding was erroneously double counted in the 
appropriations language for the CAS account.
    This amendment seeks to make the legislative language 
consistent with the Budget totals. As such, those totals would 
not be affected by the transmittal of this amendment.
