GSA Transition is Funded

by

The White House and GSA must be breathing a sigh of relief!  The continuing resolution (H.R. 2638) includes funding for the presidential transition . . .

SEC. 133. Notwithstanding section 101, amounts are provided for ‘‘Executive Office of the President—Office of Administration—Presidential Transition Administrative Support’’ to carry out the Presidential Transition Act of 1963 (3 U.S.C. 102 note) at a rate for operations of $8,000,000. Such funds may be transferred to other accounts that provide funding for offices within the Executive Office of the President and the Office of the Vice President in this joint resolution or any other Act, to carry out such purposes.

One Response to “GSA Transition is Funded”

  1. Doris Thomas Says:

    The Presidential Transition team must create an allowance for Doris Thomas. I provided food and beverages for the Philadelphia Campaign staff and volunteers. In addition to that, I was willing to locate housing for campaign volunteers. I organized Debate Watch parties for the Vice Pres and Presidential Debates for President Elect Obama. I coordinated several events on behalf of President Obama in Philadephia, including distributing tickets to the Bruce Springsteen Rally in Philadelphia. I organized community events in Philadelphia and I am willing to create a new Barack Obama Charter School for the Philadelphia nd Camden, New Jersey area.
