Members of Congress debated amendments to H.Res. 2100, the fiscal year 1992 Defense Department Appropriations bill. The bill as presented and requested by the Bush administration, would set the Department of Defense’s budget in fiscal year 1992 to $291 billion, a one percent decrease from the previous year. The decrease is in line with plans to reduce the U.S. military’s budget over the next five years along with the number of U.S. military personnel and U.S. military bases. Amendments to the bill involved the issue of burden sharing, or how much our allies who are defended by U.S. troops share in the cost of maintaining U.S. troops on their land. The following day, the House of Representatives passed the Defense Authorization bill in a vote of 268-161. close
