Last week, eight U.S. lawmakers called for cuts to the planned U.S. security assistance package to Colombia for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 in response to continuing reports of human rights violations, violence and impunity in the country.
Both the House of Representatives and the Senate appropriations committees passed two versions of the State, Foreign Operations and Related Programs Appropriations bill for FY 2015, which contains most of the annual U.S. budget for foreign aid. These bills offer a glimpse into what U.S. foreign aid to Latin America might look like for next year.
