This is the February 25, 2016 hearing on "Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2017," held before the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies of the Committee on Appropriations. From the statement of Loretta Lynch: "The President's 2017 budget request for the Department of Justice submitted a few weeks after that hearing has paid no heed to a lot of our concerns. The President proposes to increase spending at the Department of Justice by $802 million in 2017, for a new total of $29.9 billion. This includes $66 million in additional funding for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for 200 new positions, 80 special agents, and 120 industry operations investigators. I continue to have significant reservations about the potential abuses and harassment of law-abiding gun owners and purchasers that could result from bringing on these additional agents and investigators." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Loretta Lynch.
