SUPPORT FOR THE INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS BUDGET

WHEREAS, U.S. cities are the front line in developing trade and economic development opportunities abroad; and

WHEREAS, the Congress has responsibly passed a supplemental spending bill to meet the urgent needs in Kosovo and Southeast Europe as well as Central America and Jordan; and

WHEREAS, we must heed a central lesson of this century, which is that problems abroad, if left unattended, will all too often come home to the United States; and

WHEREAS, supporting efforts to counter terror, or fight drugs, or halt proliferation, or promote U.S. exports, or prevent the abuse of human rights are impossible without credible resource commitments,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that The United States Conference of Mayors urges the Congress to fund the FY2000 USG Foreign Affairs Budget (150 Account) at the President’s request level of $21 billion, less than 1% of the federal budget.
