Local Cost of Iraq War Updated


By: National Priorities Project

July 3, 2008 -- On June 30th, President Bush signed into law a $162 billion War Supplemental spending bill, providing an additional $130 billion for the Iraq War alone. This new funding brings the total allocated for the Iraq War to $656.1 billion.

NPP has updated its local cost of war numbers to reflect this new total, also showing what this war funding could buy local communities if it was spent on domestic needs instead.
