DHS congressional justifications for FY07 now online

Filed under: Budgets and Spending,DHS News — by Christian Beckner on October 23, 2006

This weekend I noticed that the full congressional justifications for the FY 2007 budget request for the Department of Homeland Security were available online at the Government Printing Office website, on a page for Senate appropriations documents. It’s an invaluable resource for DHS-watchers, 2933 pages in length, detailing the budget requests and strategic plans for all of the different parts of DHS, as of February 2006.

Warning, for those who are trying to download it: the file is 122 megabytes in size.
