Congressman Salazar's Funding Priorities for State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs

As a new member of the Appropriations Committee, I have new oversight responsibilities for the spending of federal dollars, as well as an increased role in the prioritization of federal spending.

For too long, the process of Congressional funding requests lacked transparency and accountability, leading some members of Congress to abuse it and the public trust. Since assuming the majority in 2007, Congressional Democrats have significantly reformed the process, including ensuring that every American can easily determine which member of Congress has submitted a requests.

Below you will find a list of my funding requests for the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations bill.

10377 East Geddes Avenue
Centennial, CO 80112
Project C.U.R.E. would use the appropriated funds to provide customized medical supplies and equipment to needy doctors, nurses, health care clinics, and hospitals in the developing world, especially Africa.  Project C.U.R.E. employs a time-tested, supply chain management system that allows 98 cents of every dollar to be used for medical program purposes.  The best practices system is a turn-key solution that includes: an onsite, thorough needs assessment to determine customized medical relief for each medical facility; provides all necessary logistical support for the collection, transportation, customs documentation and clearance, and delivery of necessary medical supplies to recipient healthcare facilities; provide verification and follow up needs assessment to ensure quality control and to reduce misuse and crime.
