Bush asks for $74.7B

President Bush asked Congress to approve $74.7 billion in supplemental appropriations for fiscal 2003 to fund the war with Iraq, international assistance and Iraqi relief and reconstruction, homeland security and the legislative branch.

The Bush request includes $62.6 billion for military action in Iraq and the war on terrorism. Up to $1.1 billion would be used to develop, purchase and upgrade systems, including command, control, communications, computer and intelligence equipment; chemical and biological detection and decontamination gear; and targeting devices. Bush wants Congress to vote on the supplemental measure by April 11.
