On February 14, 2011, the Obama Administration presented its FY2012 budget request for International Affairs (function 150) programs. Within that request was $59.64 billion for programs funded through the State Department, Foreign Operations and Related Accounts appropriation, a 5.1% increase over the current funding level. This fact sheet provides a brief overview of that request. A full report on FY2012 State and Foreign Operations budget and appropriations issues will follow initial congressional consideration of appropriations legislation.
