From the opening statement of Daniel E. Lungren: "The Committee on Homeland Security Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, Infrastructure Protection, and Security Technologies will come to order. The subcommittee is meeting today to examine Science and Technology Directorate and its operations in the current fiscal climate. I want to begin this hearing by emphasizing my strong support for science and technology research and development. I think you will find that across both ends of the spectrum and both sides of the aisle. I believe scientific R&D [Research and Development] generates innovation, cutting-edge technologies, and new products to drive economic development and job creation. R&D is also a critical element of the Department's mission to strengthen America's security and resiliency by providing knowledge products and innovative technology solutions to bolster our homeland defenses."
