"The 111th Congress and the Obama Administration may consider further agreements and initiatives to implement or enhance these arrangements. The Obama Administration requested $400,000 in border security assistance and $65,000 in International Military Education and Training (IMET) funding for Saudi Arabia in FY2010. Section 7041 of the FY2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 3288) would prohibit the use of funds appropriated by the bill for assistance to Saudi Arabia, subject to national security waiver authority granted to the Secretary of State. This report provides background information about Saudi Arabia and analyzes current issues in U.S.-Saudi relations."
