FY2008 budget

On June 5, 2007, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations approved a measure that would allow the president, now or in the future, to waive current provisions that require one-third of all U.S. aid for HIV/AIDS prevention be spend on abstinence-only programs, opening up the possibility of funding to international family planning organizations since barred from American aid resources. President Bush would not be expected to reverse the requirements, but it would leave the option open for the next president to do so. The subcommittee's Republican members, led by ranking member Wolf, came out against the measure, citing the president's threat to veto any legislation weakening abortion laws. Subcommittee Chair Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) stated that the legislation does not violate the anti-abortion policy as it leaves the authority to the president to make the decision.
