The resources requested for Department of State appropriations in FY 2008 will sustain ongoing initiatives for people, security, facilities, information technology, and management reform. They will also address new and increased requirements to advance transformational diplomacy. These include repositioning the U.S. global diplomatic presence, expanded roles for U.S. representatives on the ground, increasingly complex and dangerous missions, and coordinating U.S. Government civilian efforts on reconstruction and stabilization.
