From the Document: "On February 16, 2006, the Administration submitted two separate FY2006 supplemental appropriations requests. The first, totaling $72.4 billion, would fund ongoing military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan ($67.9 billion), and State Department operations in Iraq and various foreign aid programs, including additional assistance for Iraq ($4.2 billion). The other supplemental would provide $19.8 billion for recovery and reconstruction activities in hurricane-affected Gulf Coast areas. Thus, Congress is considering a combined spending proposal of $92.2 billion...For hurricane recovery, half the funds- $9.9 billion- are designated for the Department of Homeland Security, mostly for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Department of Housing and Urban Development would receive $4.4 billion, most of which would be used for community planning and development. DOD would receive $1.8 billion and the Army Corps of Engineers $1.5 billion, primarily to be used for flood control and coastal emergencies, procurement, and construction. The Small Business Administration would receive $1.3 billion for loans to homeowners, renters, and businesses."
