This testimony compilation is from the March 19, 2013 hearing, "Budget Hearing - Federal Bureau of Investigation," before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies. From the opening statement of Robert S. Mueller, III: "Good morning Chairman Wolf, Ranking Member Fattah, and members of the Subcommittee. I look forward to discussing the FBI's efforts as a threat-driven, intelligence-led organization that is guided by clear operational strategies and priorities. The FBI has established strong practices for sharing intelligence, leveraged key technologies to help us be more efficient and productive, and have hired some of the best to serve as Special Agents, Intelligence Analysts, and professional staff. We have built a workforce and leadership cadre that view change and transformation as a positive tool to keeping the FBI focused on the key threats facing our Nation. Just as our national security and criminal adversaries and threats constantly adapt and evolve, so must the FBI be able to quickly respond with new or revised strategies and operations to counter these threats. Looking forward, a key challenge facing the FBI will be maintaining its current capabilities and capacities to respond to these threats at a time when the budgetary environment remains constrained." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Robert S. Mueller, III.
