Libya mission to cost $1.1 bln by Sept 30 -White House
WASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) – The cost of U.S. military operations and humanitarian assistance in Libya was $716 million as of June 3 and is projected to reach $1.1 billion by Sept. 30, 2001, according to a White House report to Congress released on Wednesday.
The report stated that these funds would be found in the existing Defense Department budget, and would therefore not require a supplemental appropriations request to Congress.
