House Armed Services Committee Report 110-146

SECTION 1221--MODIFICATION OF AUTHORITIES RELATING TO THE SPECIAL INSPECTOR GENERAL FOR IRAQ RECONSTRUCTION

This section would extend the responsibilities of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction by including all reconstruction funding provided regardless of source or fiscal year. Currently, authority relating to certain reconstruction funds provided for Iraq in fiscal year 2005 is unclear, and as of the date of this report, authority does not extend to any reconstruction funding for fiscal year 2007 or beyond.
