George Chalink talked about the Defense Appropriations Bill which provided $447.6 in defense spending, including $70 billion for Iraq and Afghanistan. The bill was a $19 billion increase over the previous year’s spending, but was $4 billion less than what President Bush requested. The bill included a 2.2%pay hike for military personnel and Department of Defense civilian workers. Missile defense takes up 14% of research and development spending in the bill. The Senate passed the defense bill Friday, September 29, 2006, by a vote of 100-0. The House passed it Tuesday, September 26, by 394-22. Mr. Chalink also responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
