The spending bill --the second, and generally speaking, more enjoyable, portion of Mexico's annual budget two-step-- has now come and gone, with the Chamber of Deputies approving the bill last night. El Universal reports that security forces will be given much less (though not Sedena), though unless I'm mistaken, they mean less than Calderón asked for, and not less than last year. (My link to an article with last year's budget particulars is broken, thanks to Excélsior's website revamping earlier this year.) Education was given more money than Calderón had requested.
