This week, Budget Insight examined the new provisions of the newly-signed Weapon Systems AcquisitionReform Act of 2009 (S. 454). We also reported on the Senate-passed FY 2009 second supplemental budget. Last week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee passed the Foreign Relations Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 2010 and 2011 (H.R. 2410). Part of that bill is the proposed Quadrennial Review of Diplomacy and Development (QRDD), examined here. Last week, we examined the newly announced $110 million in emergency aid to Pakistan and its relation to overall U.S. aid to Pakistan. Next week, Congress will return to Washington after the recess, where they will begin to conference on the second FY 2009 supplemental budget.
