Democratic senators are expected to try to boost the amount of federal funding for state and local emergency preparedness included in the nearly $80 billion supplementary Iraqi war spending bill to $4.3 billion — . Senators Charles E. Schumer, senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Barbara A. Mikulski, will attempt to attach an amendment increasing “first responders” funding to the emergency spending bill that already had the approval of the Senate Appropriations Committee. The amendment also has the support of Senate Minority Leader Thomas A. Daschle and senator Robert C. Byrd, according to Schumer. “ America's mayors strongly support the efforts of senator Clinton, senator Schumer, senator Mikulski, and other members of Congress to… increase homeland security assistance for cities and to get the money to cities more quickly, more efficiently, and with greater flexibility,” said Baltimore Mayor Martin O' Malley in a statement.
