This is the March 22, 2012 hearing, "Legislative Branch Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2013" before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Ben Nelson: "Ms. Erickson, […] [f]or fiscal year 2013, your office is requesting a total of $30.1 million, which is the same level of funding recently provided to your office in fiscal year 2012. You are requesting $4.2 million for the Senate Information Services (SIS) program, which was transferred to your office from the SAA [Senate Sergeant at Arms] in fiscal year 2011. I look forward to hearing more about the specifics of your budget request, and how you are clearly doing more with less, because, obviously, that is what you are doing. I also look forward to receiving an update on the progress of the new Senate payroll system. Mr. Gainer, […] SAA's requests for fiscal year 2013 total $205 million, an increase of $1.7 million more than the fiscal year 2012 enacted level. I look forward to hearing your priorities, given the tight budget that you submitted. Finally, Chief Morse, your fiscal year 2012 request totals $373.8 million, which is an increase of $34 million, or 10 percent more than the fiscal year 2012 enacted level." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ben Nelson, Nancy Erickson, Jon Hoeven, Phillip D. Morse, and Terrance W. Gainer.
