P.L. 109-268, An act to provide funding authority to facilitate the evacuation of persons from Lebanon, and for other purposes
- This item is from the 109th Congress (2005-2006) and is no longer current. Comments, voting, and wiki editing have been disabled, and the cost/savings estimate has been frozen.
S. 3741 would grant the Department of State additional flexibility in funding the evacuation of people from Lebanon. It would amend current law to increase the department's authority to transfer funds to the Emergencies in the Diplomatic and Consular Service (EDCS) appropriation account, which pays for evacuations. It also would lift the restriction that $15 million appropriated in Public Law 109-148 to the EDCS account be used only for evacuations related to the avian flu.
