The article reports that the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 2528, the Military Quality of Life and Veterans' Affairs Appropriations Act, on May 26, 2005. The bill passed on a nearly unanimous vote, 425 to 1, with only Congressman Fortney Stark, voting against the measure. The appropriations bill provides only about $600 million above the funding level recommended by President George W. Bush in his Budget Request for the financial year (FY) 2006, and approximately $700 million over the FY 2005 funding level.
