FY2007 Supplemental Appropriations for Defense, Foreign Affairs, and Other Purposes [Updated June 8, 2007]   [open pdf - 351KB]

"On Thursday, May 24, the House and Senate approved a compromise on H.R. 2206, a bill providing $120 billion in supplemental appropriations for FY2007. The President signed the bill into law, P.L. 110-28, on May 25. In the House, the key vote on the bill was to approve the rule, H.Res. 468, which was adopted by 218-201. The Senate then approved the House-passed measure by a vote of 80-14. The final bill provides money for military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere through September 30, 2007, the end of FY2007. It does not set target dates for withdrawing troops from Iraq, as had Congress's first version of the FY2007 supplemental, H.R. 1591. The President vetoed that bill on May 1, and, on May 2, the House failed to override the veto on by a vote of 222-203, with approval of 2/3 required. Nor does the bill require a later vote to release part of the funds provided for operations in Iraq, as did the initial, May 10, House-passed version of H.R. 2206. The President had warned that he would also veto that bill."
