"State Department funding is within the Commerce, Justice, State (CJS) appropriation. The President sent his FY2005 budget to Congress on February 2, 2004. Included was the Department of State FY2005 budget request for a total of $8,551.4 million (5% more than the FY2004 enacted level, including supplemental funds and rescissions) and the International Broadcasting FY2005 budget request for $569.3 million (a 3.8% decline from the FY2004 level). Throughout February and March, Secretary of State Colin Powell testified before the House and Senate appropriations committees. He emphasized security needs, hiring, and technology. The House Appropriations Committee reported out its FY2005 CJS appropriation bill (H.R. 4754) on June 23, 2004, recommending $8,430 million for the Department of State, $121 million less than the President's request. The House passed its amended bill on July 8th by a vote of 397 to 18. The House version provided $8,420.7 million for the Department of State and $610.3 million for international broadcasting. The House agreed to reduce the Committee recommendation of a $50 million funding level for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) by $9.4 million to $40.579 million, setting the State Department funding at $8,420.7 million."
