U.S. President George Bush on May 13, 2003 signed into law legislation that will provide 78.5 billion dollars to fund the war in Iraq, including 2.23 billion dollars for state and local emergency preparedness. The 78.5 billion dollars war-funding package also included 235 million dollars for airports to install massive and expensive explosives-detection systems in terminals and 2.9 billion dollars to assist the financially troubled airline industry and help it cope with the decrease in passenger traffic due partly to the war.
