Sudan

On Thursday July 9, the House considered H.R. 3081: Department of State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations bill. Among other provisions, this legislation provides $13.4 billion for national security and related initiatives, including efforts to fight terrorism. It also focuses on diplomacy by increasing funding for diplomatic efforts at the State Department, and to hire 1,000 more Foreign Service Officers. It provides stabilization and rebuilding funds for Iraq , Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as significant increases in global health and peacekeeping funding.

H.R. 3081 includes some initiatives I requested, including language to strengthen reintegration programs in Sudan for returning persons displaced by violence and unrest.

I voted YES. H.R. 3081 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:
