ABSTRACT
Before both houses of the U.S. Congress departed for their August 2003 recess, the U.S. House managed to pass all four of the money bills of interest to the Middle East: the Foreign Relations Authorization bill, and the appropriations bills for Defense, Foreign Operations, and the departments of Commerce, Justice and State. Of these, however, the Senate has passed only the Defense Appropriations bill, and even that one has not yet emerged from the conference committee reconciling the U.S. House and U.S. Senate versions. Foreign Relations Authorization bill authorizes the expected amounts of aid for Israel and Egypt and includes the same provisions with respect to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel that were in the authorization bill last year. The Foreign Operations appropriations bill passed by the U.S. House July 24, 2003 earmarks the expected $2.64 billion for Israel and $1.875 billion for Egypt, with the provision allowing $568 million of Israel's military aid to be spent in Israel.
