Senate

The Senate Appropriations Committee completed work on all of its 12 annual spending bills this week when it marked up its $52.08B FY17 State Foreign Operations appropriations bill in subcommittee and full committee. The bill was approved on a 30 to 0 vote. It is $591M below the FY16 enacted level and $687.4M below the President’s FY17 budget request. Of the $52.08B amount, $37.19B is for enduring costs and $14.89 billion is for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO). This is the earliest the committee has finished its work since 1988.

FY17 Military Construction-Veterans Affairs and Zika Virus Funding Conference Agreement

The Senate failed to invoke cloture on the FY17 Military Construction-Veterans Affairs and Zika virus funding conference agreement. The vote was 52 to 48 with two Republicans voting against clotures (Mike Lee of Utah and James Lankford of Oklahoma) and one Democrat (Joe Donnelly of Indiana) voting for it. After the vote failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) vowed to bring the measure back to the floor after the July 4th recess, but Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-TX) said that he did not expect Republicans to reopen negotiations with Democrats on Zika funding.

Middle East Emergency Funding Package

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) indicated this week that he has held preliminary discussions with Senate Appropriations Ranking Member Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) regarding $4B emergency funding package aimed at helping Middle East allies (e.g. Lebanon and Jordan) cope with the Syrian refugee crisis.
