The measure provides $33.45 billion mainly for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, $2.8 billion for earthquake relief in Haiti, more than $6 billion to foreign intelligence and operations and $13.4 billion in mandatory spending for the Veterans Affairs Department for illnesses related to Agent Orange.
