Subcommittee Markup - FY 2016 Homeland Security Appropriations Bill: Hearing Before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, Subcommittee on Homeland Security, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, First Session, July 9, 2015   [open pdf - 474KB]

This is a compilation of the July 9, 2015 hearing "Subcommittee Markup - FY 2016 Homeland Security Appropriations Bill," held before the House Committee on Appropriations' Subcommittee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of subcommittee chairman John Carter: "Threats to our country continue to grow. We see it daily. Federal computer systems are hacked. Floods and other natural disasters confront local communities. The President's open border policy emboldens smugglers, traffickers, and illegal migrants. And the freedoms we cherish are exploited by home-grown terrorists and violent extremists. For those reasons, the Department of Homeland Security's missions are more critical now than ever…and it is why it is imperative that we pass this bill. Working with my colleagues, and the ranking member, Mrs. Roybal-Allard, I believe we are presenting legislation that strengthens the security of our homeland, addresses areas where reform is needed, and cuts inefficiencies within the agencies. Thank you all for your hard work, time and effort on this important legislation. Like every subcommittee, we received a challenging 302(b) allocation. After a thorough scrubbing of the numbers, however, this recommendation ensures both national security and fiscal restraint."
