On May 7, 2009, President Obama sent his FY2010 Budget request to Congress. In total, the FY2010 request includes $53.9 billion for International Affairs (the 150 Account), which is $4.1 billion more than the total appropriated in FY2009, or an 8.2% increase. Since the FY2010 request includes all FY2010 funding for Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and humanitarian needs (i.e. P.L. 480 food aid), this analysis compares the FY2010 request with the total FY2009 spending including both the base appropriation, emergency supplementals, and a pending FY2009 supplemental.
