"The President's budget request for FY2006 was submitted to Congress on February 7, 2005. The Administration requested $41.1 billion in gross budget authority for FY2006 (including mandatory expenditures, fees, and special funds). The Administration is requesting a net appropriation of $30.6 billion in net budget authority for FY2006, of which $29.6 billion is discretionary budget authority, and $1 billion is mandatory budget authority. The FY2005 enacted net appropriated budget authority for DHS was $33.1 billion, including an advance appropriation of $2.058 billion for Bioshield; without Bioshield, the FY2005 net appropriated budget authority for DHS was $30.1 billion. Not including Bioshield, the FY2006 request for an appropriation of $30.6 in net budget authority represents an increase of 1.7% over the FY2005 enacted amount of $30.1 billion."
