US House ready to move on defense funding bill
from Defense News
Congress didn't make Defense Secretary Robert Gate's July 4 deadline for passing a war supplemental funding bill, but there is now a glimmer of hope that lawmakers might get the measure passed before August, when the military would begin to face severe cash-flow problems. The holdup on the bill has been in the House of Representatives, but Rep. David Obey, D-Wis., the House Appropriations Committee chairman, announced June 30 that a $93.5 billion supplemental appropriations bill would be considered by the House that includes $37 billion for troops in Iraq.
