quarter.
The bill had been held up
by a dispute between the
Ford Administration and
the congressional support-
ers of Israel over the Transi-
tional quarter funding.
Originally, Congress
wanted to provide Israel
with $550 million in transi-
tional quarter aid, which
was 25 percent of the $2.2
billion appropriated for Is-
rael for the 1976 Fiscal year.
But Ford did not want any
supplemental aid, saying
that Israel and enough for
its needs with the funds for
1976 and the $1.8 billion rec-
ommended for the 1977 fis-
cal year which begins Oct. 1.
Supporters of Israel re-
cently claimed that Ford
later approved providing
Israel $376 million in tran-
sitional aid but then said

Israel only $200 million
dollars and divide the re-
