Excerpt
Summary: On February 7, 2005, the Administration released its FY2006 federal budget request. The request includes $441.8 billion in new budget authority for national defense, of which $421. billion is for military activities of the Department of Defense (DOD), $17.5 billion for atomic energy defense activities of the Department of Energy, and $3. billion for defense-related activities of other agencies. The FY2006 request does not include funding for ongoing military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. On May 5, the House, and on May 10, the Senate, approved a conference agreement on a bill (H.R. 1268, P.L. 109-13) providing FY2005 supplemental appropriations for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, of $76 billion for the Department of Defense.
