U.S. Military and Police Aid:
The 2005 aid package and the 2004 "troop cap" debate


Follow the links for information about each bill's contents, and about the debates in Congress:

2005 aid request: On February 6, 2004, the Bush administration submitted to Congress its budget request for 2005, maintaining previous levels of aid to the Andean region, especially Colombia.

Raising the "troop cap": The law currently restricts the presence of U.S. presence in Colombia to 400 military personnel and 400 contractors. Congress is considering a Bush administration request to increase the "troop cap" to 800 and the contractor limit to 600.
