House Consideration Of Conference Report
Waiving Points Of Order Against Conference Report On H.R. 4811, Foreign Operations, Export Financing, And Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2001 (House of Representatives – October 25, 2000)
…With the international family planning language set, with the $420 million appropriation there to help family planning for women all over the world, it is a major effort. I commend the gentleman from Alabama (Chairman Callahan) and the gentlewoman from California (Ms. Pelosi), the ranking member, for working closely and hard on that.
…This conference report is the first time in 5 years that this body has increased funding for international family planning. Just 5 years ago, we spent $200 million more a year to save women’s lives. With the increase in this bill today, raising USAID funding to $425 million from $385 million last year, we are taking the first step to restoring our commitment to the life-saving resources international family planning provides to some of the world’s poorest women.
Mr. STARK. …This bill also includes no restrictions on international family planning activities for non-profit organizations. I’m not sure why my anti-abortion colleagues have allowed this bill to proceed, but I’m thankful that this body has begun to realize that we cannot force our own personal morality on other people. I hope that in the future this body will continue on this path and support a woman’s right to choose.
Sec. 598. Family Planning
The conference agreement provides a ceiling of $425,000,000 for population planning activities or other population assistance but prohibits any of such funds from being obligated or expended until February 15, 2001. The managers believe this will afford adequate time for the exercise of the authority of the President under the Foreign Assistance Act and other law to determine what terms and conditions, if any, should be imposed on assistance for population planning and other population activities.
