A panel of House-Senate negotiators on Sept. 22 approved a $447.4 billion Department of Defense budget, which includes $70 billion in emergency funding for the war in Iraq and for reset and readiness costs for the U.S. Army and Marines in the conflict. The same panel is scheduled to take action on the proposed $34.8 million homeland-security measure later this week. Together, the defense and homeland-security budgets are two of the last major legislative deals that Republicans hope to complete before sending members home next week to campaign. Under the approved defense measure, $1.4 billion will go to fully fund the purchase of 20 F-22 fighter aircraft and the Air Force will receive funds to purchase two instead of five F-35 Joint Strike Fighter aircraft in the coming year.
