THEWHITE
HOUSE
WASHINGTON
May
17,
2013
Dear
Mr.
Speaker:
I
ask
the
Congress
to
considerthe
enclosed
Fiscal
Year
(FY)
2014
Budget
amendments
for
the
Departments
of
Agriculture,
Defense,
Health
and
Human
Services,
Housing and
Urban Development,
the
Interior,
Justice,
State,
and
Transportation,
as
well
as
Other
International
Programs,
theNational
Aeronautics
and
Space
Administration,
and
theFederal
Trade
Commission.
These
amendments
do
not
affect
the
proposed
FY
2014
Budget
totals.
These
amendments
are
necessary
to
reflect
correctly policies
assumed
in
the
FY
2014
Budget.Also
included
is
a
new
Department
of
Defense
(DOD)
General
Provision
that
would
authorize
the
Secretary
of
the
Navy
to
receive
and
retain
payment
in-kind
for
the
settlement
of
thelongstanding
A-12
aircraft
contract
litigation.
This
litigation
has been ongoing
for
over
two
decades.
The
final
decision
about
the
pace
of the
drawdown
in
Afghanistan
was
not
made
at
the
time
the
FY
2014
Budget
request
was
developed.
As
a
result,
the
Budget
included
a
placeholder
for
DOD
FY
2014
Overseas Contingency
Operations
(OCO)
funding,
equivalent
to
the
amount
provided
in
the
President's
FY
2013
Budget.
The
Administration
noted
in
the
FY
2014
Budget
that
after
determining
the
required
force
levels in
Afghanistan,
a
Budget
amendment
updating
the
OCO
request
would
be
submitted
to
the
Congress.
The
enclosed
DOD
amendments
also
include
thenecessary
updates
to
the
OCO
request,
which
funds
military
operations
in
Afghanistan
and
other
activities
that
primarily
support
Operation
Enduring
Freedom.
In
addition,
this
transmittal
contains
FY
2014amendments
for
the
Legislative
Branch.
As
a
matter
of
comity
and
tradition,
these
appropriations requestsfor
the
Legislative
Branch
are
transmitted
without
change.
 
2
The
details
of
these
amendments
are
set
forth
in
the
enclosed
letter
from
theDirectorofthe
Office of
Management
and Budget.
I
again
urge
the
Congress
to
consider
my
FY
2014
Budget,
which
takes
a
balanced
approach
to
further
deficit
reduction
and
replaces
sequestration.
The
Honorable John
Boehner
Speaker
of the
House
of
Representatives

th
Congress,
1st
SessionSubmitted for your consideration are amendments to your Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Budgetfor the Departments
of
Agriculture, Defense, Health and Human Services, Housing and UrbanDevelopment, the Interior, Justice, State, and Transportation, as well as Other InternationalPrograms, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the Federal TradeCommission. These amendments do not affect the proposed FY 2014 Budget totals. Theseamendments are necessary to reflect correctly policies assumed in your
FY
2014 Budget.Also included is a new Department
of
Defense (DOD) General Provision that wouldauthorize the Secretary
of
the Navy to receive and retain payment in-kind for the settlement
of
the longstanding A-12 aircraft contract litigation. This litigation has been ongoing for over twodecades.In addition, this package updates the FY 2014 Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO)funding request for DOD. As you stated, the mission in Afghanistan is
in
the midst
of
atransition. Over the course
of
this year, American forces are moving into a support role asAfghan forces take the lead. By February 2014,
half
of
our troops there will be home, and byDecember 2014, United States' combat operations in Afghanistan will be over. Still, the UnitedStates will maintain a commitment to Afghanistan's sovereignty and security, and we willcontinue to equip, train, advise, and assist the Afghan National Security Forces; supporteconomic development and governance efforts; and pursue our counterterrorism goals againstal Qaeda and its affiliated groups.Military operations in Afghanistan, as well as other activities in other countries thatprimarily support Operation Enduring Freedom, comprise the vast majority
of
the DOD OCOrequest. Because final decisions about the pace and structure
of
the drawdown
of
U.S. forces inAfghanistan were not available before the preparation
of
the Budget, the FY 2014 Budgetincluded a placeholder value
of
$88.5 billion for DOD OCO funding, in addition to $3.8 billionrequested for Department
of
State OCO funding. This package submits for your considerationthe complete and updated request for
FY
2014 DOD OCO funding, totaling $79.4 billion. Thistotal is $7.8 billion less than the FY 2013 enacted amount.
Of
the total DOD OCO request, $78.1 billion is for activities in support
of
OperationEnduring Freedom (OEF) and $1.3 billion is for fmalizing the transition activities in Iraq.
In
support
of
OEF, DOD OCO funding will support several key efforts, including:
