ABSTRACT

From the Overview: "Each year, Congress typically considers 12 distinct appropriations measures to fund federal programs and activities. One of these is the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs (SFOPS) bill, which supports a range of U.S. activities around the world. On May 28, 2021, the Biden Administration released its proposed FY2022 budget request [hyperlink] (a summary [hyperlink] was released on April 9). The request includes $64.15 billion in new budget authority for SFOPS accounts ($63.62 billion net of rescissions of prior year funding), which may be compared with FY2021 funding in various ways. For example, the requested amount is: [1] 10% less than the total FY2021-enacted level (which includes more than $23 billion in emergency and Overseas Contingency Operation (OCO) funds), and [2] 14% more than enacted FY2021 base and OCO funding (excluding emergency funding used primarily for Coronavirus Disease 2019 [COVID-19] response). The FY2022 SFOPS request is higher than any SFOPS total funding level enacted in the past decade, with the exception of FY2021, in current dollars[.]"
