State, Foreign Operations Appropriations: A Guide to Component Accounts [August 1, 2013]   [open pdf - 294KB]

"The State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs appropriations legislation provides annual funding for almost all of the international affairs programs generally considered as part of the 150 International Affairs Budget Function (the major exception being food assistance). The legislation has also served as a vehicle for Congress to place conditions on the expenditure of those funds, and express its views regarding certain foreign policy issues. This report briefly discusses the legislation generally and then provides a short description of the various funding accounts as they appear in Division I, 'Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2012,' of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (P.L. 112-74), which is the basis on which FY2013 appropriations are provided under the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 (P.L. 113-6). For FY2013 presequestration funding levels (and post-sequester levels when they become known), see Appendix C in CRS [Congressional Research Service] Report R42621, 'State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs: FY2013 Budget and Appropriations.'"
