Honorees At USGLC Dinner Discuss U.S. Foreign Affairs Spending

Devex describes the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition’s tribute dinner that took place on December 12 in Washington, D.C. The group this year honored Vice President Joe Biden and Reps. Kay Granger (R-Texas) and Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), “a Republican and a Democrat who as chairwomen of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations have for years held the purse strings for the so-called 150 account, which covers U.S. foreign affairs spending,” the news service writes and includes comments from all three about “how to convince lawmakers to fund development cooperation” (Rosenkranz, 12/13).
