From the opening statement of Christopher P. Carney: "The purpose of this hearing is to examine the Department of Homeland Security's completion of its first Quadrennial Homeland Security Review, or QHSR. This subcommittee has held a hearing and multiple briefings on the topic in both the 110th and 111th Congresses. I know that myself, the Ranking Member, and all Members of this subcommittee took a particular interest in the QHSR because we recognize how instrumental it is in shaping homeland security policy and guiding the Department toward a better protection of our country. We will examine the Department's process for completing the QHSR, its plans for implementing the new policies contained within the document, and whether the final product meets legislative requirements. The QHSR is a comprehensive assessment outlining the longterm strategy and priorities for homeland security and guidance on the Department's programs, assets, capabilities, budget, policies, and authorities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher P. Carney, Gus M. Bilirakis, Jane Holl Lute, and James Carafano.
