U.S. Democratic senators have managed during the first week of April 2003 to increase proposed spending to 2.2 billion dollars for state and local emergency preparedness as the Senate and House both have approved separate bills totaling nearly 80 billion dollars to fund Iraq war. Senate and House negotiators are expected to meet on April 7 to begin the process of reconciling differences between the two bills in order to have a single piece of legislation ready for President George W. Bush's signature by April 11.
