Call Congress Today About the Iraq Funding Bill

This week, Congress aims to complete a final version of the $81 billion Iraq-Afghanistan Supplemental Appropriations bill. Members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees, working together as a conference committee, are meeting today to work through differences in their respective versions of the bill.

Please take a few minutes this morning or afternoon to call your Congressional representatives. Together, we can help change this bill. (Your Congressional phone numbers are below.)

Although both the House and Senate versions fail to address most of the AFSC's concerns about the future direction of U.S. policy in Iraq, there are several differences between the bills that will influence our ability to hold legislators accountable in the future. The Senate version contains four amendments that represent some limited progress toward our goal of a free and peaceful Iraq.

Contact your elected officials today and ask that the provisions of these four Senate amendments be included in the final House-Senate version of the Iraq Supplemental. You can also ask your elected officials to speak with their colleagues on the Appropriations Committees, who are deliberating these measures.

Follow the link below for talking points and contact information for your legislators.

While none of us like seeing this war addressed as a special appropriation outside of the regular budget process, we must do what we can, while we can, to see that the best possible bill is signed into law.

Peace,
Peter Lems
AFSC Iraq staff
