US House of Representatives approve $48.8 billion in foreign aid

The US House of Representatives has approved legislation to spend $48.8 billion to strengthen US foreign policy by enhancing both diplomacy and development efforts.

The aid and development community’s focus will now shift to Congressman Howard Berman’s Initiating Foreign Assistance Reform Act so as to ensure the kind of transparency and accountability this diplomatic and development spending will require to have the best possible effect.
