Presiding Bishop Letter to the Senate Supporting the Kerry-Lugar Ammendment - 2009

I write, as Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, to urge you to co-sponsor a critical amendment Senators Kerry and Lugar will offer to the FY10 Budget resolution. The KerryLugar amendment will restore funding for our nation’s foreign-assistance programs to the level set forth in the President’s budget request, $53.8 billion, reversing the cuts made by the Budget Committee and fulfilling commitments to essential programs around the world. We believe these programs are foundational to U.S. security and our global credibility.
