Statement on Signing the Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2009
I want to thank the Members of Congress who put politics aside and stood up to support a bill that will provide for the safety of our troops and the American people. This legislation will make available the funding necessary to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end, defeat terrorist networks in Afghanistan, and further prepare our Nation in the event of a continued outbreak of the H1N1 pandemic flu.
Note: H.R. 2346, approved June 24, was assigned Public Law No. 111-32.
