President Bush signed into law today a $257 billion supplemental spending package that will fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan several months into the next president's term and a host of domestic programs. Bush's signature on the bill comes days after the Senate passed the measure Thursday night.
The package appropriates some $162 billion dollars for the wars; $62.8 billion for an expanded GI bill; $8.2 billion for a 13-week unemployment insurance benefit extension; and a bevy of other domestic discretionary spending provisions.WaPo: Bush signs $162 billion war spending bill
