Bush will make a statement after receiving Iraq spending bill
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush will make a statement Tuesday at 6:10 p.m., about two hours after he receives a $124 billion war-spending bill that calls for the withdrawal of American combat troops from Iraq, the White House said.

The president has said he will veto the measure.

Dan Bartlett, a counselor to the president, said Bush has asked the three broadcast networks for air time at 6:10 p.m.
