From the Document: "On May 3, House-Senate conferees concluded negotiations on H.R. 1268, the emergency FY2005 supplemental appropriation, agreeing to an $82 billion total. The House passed the conference agreement on May 5 (368-58), followed by the Senate on May 10 (100-0). President Bush signed the bill (P.L. 109-13) on May 11. As approved, the $82 billion conference agreement is roughly the same as the President's overall request, but with numerous changes in funding allocations and policy provision, including the attachment of immigration legislation. On April 21, the Senate passed H.R. 1268 (S.Rept. 109-52), providing $81.3 billion, about $780 million less than the President's $82 billion request and about $80 million below the House level. The House approved its bill on March 16 (H.Rept. 109-16)."
