Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Defense Appropriations update
In June, when the House of Representatives passed the Defense
Appropriations bill for fiscal year 2003 (H.R. 5010), it left untouched
the Bush administration's requests for environmental restoration funding
at active and former bases. [Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC)
environmental funding is included in a separate Appropriations bill,
Military Construction.]

Army  $396 million
Navy $257 million
Air Force $390 million
Defense-Wide $23 million
Formerly Used Defense Sites $212 million

However, on August 1, the Senate boosted the Formerly Used Defense Sites
account from $212 million to $252 million. It also raised the
President's request for Kah'olawe from $25 million - approved by the
House - to $80 million.

The differences between the two versions of the bill will be resolved in
conference committee.
