This is a hearing titled "The Federal Emergency Management Agency's Budget Submission for Fiscal Year 2015" held on March 13, 2014 before the Subcommittee on Emergency Management, Intergovernmental Relations, and the District of Columbia of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Senator Mark Begich: "We are here today to discuss the President's Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 budget submission for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). We welcome Administrator Fugate. Thank you again for being patient while we got down here. I look forward to our discussion. The past few years have been very busy for FEMA. In 2013, the agency responded to 62 major disasters and made 28 Fire Assistance declarations. In addition to responding to last year's events, the agency continued recovery and mitigation work following catastrophic disasters from the past years, including Hurricane Sandy. FEMA continued to do this work under pressure to cut costs as we were asking agencies across the government to do. We also are asking FEMA to do more to aid State and local governments that face increasingly unpredictable threats." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: W. Craig Fugate.
