"The subcommittee is meeting today to hear testimony on the president's fiscal year 2007 budget and Coast Guard programs impacting maritime border security. […]The Coast Guard also plays a key role in pushing out our borders further from our shores in order to prevent terrorists and terrorist weapons from arriving at U.S. shores. […] we want to ensure that the president's fiscal year 2007 budget request of $8.4 billion for the Coast Guard accounts for the inevitable toll placed upon legacy assets while also allowing for continued performance of the Coast Guard's vital homeland security missions, which does include ports, waterways and coast security, drug and migrant interdiction, defense readiness and other law enforcement as well as continued performance of the Coast Guard's non-homeland security mission. […]The Coast Guard's budget plans to add another important homeland security mission to its repertoire: protection of the National Capital Region's airspace."
