Senate Passes FY 2000 Foreign Aid Appropriations

The legislation includes nearly $3 billion in economic and military assistance to Israel, but it does not include funding requested by the Clinton administration to help Israel and the Palestinians implement the Wye accord. The bill narrowly passed the House, 214-211, on October 5. The Clinton administration has promised to veto the measure, which still faces a Senate vote.
