DHS FY 2011 Budget
Well, it looks like we are now officially going to start the DHS Budget season. The Homeland Security Subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee is now scheduled to hold a Subcommittee markup hearing for the FY 2011 DHS budget bill. The actual bill has yet to published or even introduced. The hearing will be on Friday, 06-25-10 at 1:15 pm EDT. I think that we can safely assume that there will be a provision extending the CFATS authorization for at least another year. What else will get added remains to be seen; but we are at least getting the process started. Whether or not a DHS budget bill will actually get passed before the election in November remains to be seen. I expect that we will see continuing resolutions all over the place this year.
