This is a hearing titled "Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations" held on March 27, 2014 before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Senator Barbara A. Mikulski: Good morning, everybody. The Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science will come to order. This is our first hearing on the fiscal year 2015 budget. We are starting with the esteemed and much valued Federal Bureau of Investigation. We will have a two-part hearing. This will be an open session, with all Senators free to participate and ask their questions. When this concludes, we will adjourn for a classified hearing on the Bureau's needs, particularly in the global war against terrorism and cyber security and some of those that are more sensitive in terms of the need for global protection and global cooperation. We want to welcome Director Comey here for his very important appearance and we look forward to hearing his testimony in terms of the needs of the FBI. Last year we concluded I think with a vote on January 20 in which we were able to pass an omnibus bill for fiscal year 2014. Thanks to the work, bipartisan and bicameral, Senator Murray and Congressman Ryan were able to give us a budget and a top line cancelling the sequester, which had a draconian impact on both the function of core agencies like the FBI and on the morale." The following governmental departments were present during the hearing: Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice: Office of the Attorney General, Department of Commerce: Office of the Secretary, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
