In March 2010, the Obama Administration announced that it would support $205 million in
defense assistance to Israel for the purchase of up to ten Iron Dome batteries. Section 229 of P.L.
111-383 (Ike Skelton National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011) authorized the
Secretary of Defense to provide that sum to the government of Israel for the Iron Dome system.
35
Section 8072 of P.L. 112-10 (Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations
Act, 2011) appropriated the $205 million in funding for Iron Dome, along with additional funding
to support the other components of U.S. missile defense cooperation with Israel. For FY2012, the
Administration did not request specific funding for Iron Dome, and Congress has not
appropriated funds for it.
