"House-passed appropriations for Foreign Operations (H.R. 3057), Labor/Health and Human Services (Labor/HHS, H.R. 3010), and Agriculture (H.R. 2744) would provide a total of just over $3.2 billion for international HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria programs, compared with an Administration request of just under $3.2 billion. The Senate-passed version of H.R. 3057 and the reported version of the Labor/HHS appropriations (S.Rept. 109-103) would provide more than $3.4 billion. House-passed legislation would contribute $400 million to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, while Senate bills would provide $500 million. The Administration's request represented a 9% increase over the estimated amount to be provided in FY2005.
