On Thursday, May 22, 2008, the Senate approved an amended version of H.R. 2642, a bill providing 212.2 billion in supplemental appropriations for FY2008 and FY2009. The measure includes 169.1 billion for military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, 9.9 billion for international affairs programs, and 33.1 billion for domestic programs, of which 15.6 billion is for extended unemployment compensation. The bill also expands veterans educational benefits at an estimated cost of 52 billion over the next ten years, delays Medicaid regulations that would reduce payments to states, and limits Medicare payments to new specialty hospitals.
