This is the March 8, 2016 hearing on "Homeland Security Department's Budget Submission for Fiscal Year 2017" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Chairman Ron Johnson: "And, then, the fifth priority-and this is really kind of the purpose of this hearing, from my standpoint-is to commit this Committee-commit myself-to do everything we can to assist the Secretary, as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey and the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) Director Nick Rasmussen, in succeeding in their missions of keeping this Nation safe. And, so, what this hearing is all about is the budget. This is providing the funds in what I would consider a top priority of government, the defense of this Nation-the defense of this Homeland. So, I want to really have this hearing focus on those threats and what we can do to keep this Nation safe and secure, so that America can be prosperous, because national security and economic security go hand in hand". Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jeh C. Johnson.
