US Senate passes $349 million economic stimulus for Pakistan 29 May 2010 The US Senate has passed $349 million in economic and security aid for Pakistan, as part of a $60 billion war supplemental bill to fund Afghan operations and some other projects requested by the Obama administration. The summary of the measure, passed on Thursday, said that of the $349 million assistance for Pakistan, $259 million was for social and economic support programmes and activities, including $10 million for the Pakistan Civilian Assistance Programme [instead of funding such projects in the US]. The Obama administration had requested the money in economic, law enforcement, and military assistance for Pakistan. [See: The Obusha AfPak Money Pit By Lori Price.]
