Department of Homeland Security Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2017, Hearing Before U.S. Senate, Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations, One Hundred Fourteenth Congress, Second Session, April 6, 2016 [open pdf - 271KB]
This is the April 6, 2016 hearing on "Department of Homeland Security Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2017," before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of John Hoeven: "We have called this hearing to examine research and development (R&D) efforts performed at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). By the Department's own definition, the fiscal year 2017 request for DHS includes $636 million in R&D funding. However, a number of congressional priorities have not been identified as R&D, such as $133 million in Science and Technology (S&T) laboratory facilities, so that is one thing we will want to talk about. As we seek to examine the effectiveness of R&D efforts, it is important to understand the level of resources being applied, what is considered operating, what is considered R&D. So we hope DHS will continue to work with the subcommittee to better define its funding categories."
