A $15 billion supplemental spending bill
signed by President Clinton on May 21 includes more than $500 million to
help Kosovar refugees, both overseas and in the United States.
The mid-year emergency spending package is a combination of separate measures to cover costs unforeseen when the FY 1999 appropriations were enacted primarily the Kosovo crisis and Hurricane Mitch. As with many supplemental measures, however, unrelated items were added, delaying enactment. The final package funds the NATO mission in Yugoslavia, military pay and benefits, disaster relief, and aid to farmers.
