The President transmitted a $27.1 billion Emergency FY 2002 Supplemental Appropriations request to the Congress on March 21, 2002. This second supplemental would provide resources to support the war on terrorism, strengthen homeland security, and continue economic recovery. The request did not request additional funds for Interior programs, but included a proposal to rescind $10 million from funds previously appropriated to BIA for the San Carlos Irrigation Project.
The House Committee on Appropriations reported its version of the second supplemental appropriations bill for FY 2002(H.R. 4775) on May 20. The measure totals $29.4 billion. It was taken up on the House floor on Wednesday. Consideration continued throughout Thursday, before final passage Friday morning by a vote of 280-138. The Senate Appropriations Committee version of the supplemental appropriations bill totals $31 billion.
